Two new destinations from Aberdeen International Airport have been unveiled ahead of the summer season.
Holidaymakers can now jet direct to the Latvian capital Riga and southern Portugal’s Faro.
Low-cost airline airBaltic will fly to Riga three times a week while travellers will be able to get to Faro twice a week with Ryanair.
Baiba Braze, the Latvian ambassador to the UK, marked the first flight from the Granite City yesterday, along with Lord Provost George Adam and Aberdeen International Airport managing director Carol Benzie.
Carol said: “It is fantastic to welcome airBaltic back to Aberdeen with the launch of our Riga route.
“The route will provide Aberdeen holidaymakers with easy access to a number of increasingly popular destinations in the Baltic States, such as Tallin, Palanga and Vilnius, which was one of the most requested destinations in a leisure survey we undertook with our local community.”
