easyJet expand into the Baltics
Since EU enlargement in May this year, many have been waiting with bated breath for further expansion by budget airlines into eastern Europe and the Baltics. Today, following Ryanair‘s recent decision to begin flying to Riga, easyJet have also announced that they will begin flying to Riga, initially with one route from Berlin (Schoenefeld). Flights will begin on 18 November 2004.
In addition, easyJet will become the first low-cost airline to fly from the UK and Germany to Estonia. They will begin flights from London (Stansted) and Berlin (Schoenefeld) to the Estonian capital, Tallinn, on 1 November and 28 October respectively.
