A new regular flight should connect the town at the foot of High Tatras, Poprad, with the Latvian capital of Riga. Starting in the winter season 2014/15, it will for at least three years, the SITA newswire wrote on March 27.

From December 15 on, the Latvian national air carrier Air Baltic will fly once a week between the two cities. Both the Slovak Transport Ministry and the head of the Poprad-Tatry airport, Ivana Herkeľová, praised the importance of this connection not only form the Latvian point of view, but also as for the connection to Russia and Scandinavia – as Riga has regular flights to 56 destinations, especially northern and eastern Europe. To Poprad, three planes will fly each Saturday.
