Latvian carrier airBaltic is currently promoting a very attractive sale for almost all of its services between Western Europe and its hubs in Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius. Roundtrips start for as little as €50 from Stockholm to Riga, and many more routes are available for less than €100.

The cost of hold luggage depends on the route, but is usually around €30 per flight. Purchasing the cheapest fare including checked bags is usually as expensive as purchasing them separately. The promotion runs until May 26, 2024.

While there are plenty of possibilities to find cheap flights, we have compiled some highlights. Most of the offers are valid in both directions. So this offer is equally attractive for people living in and wanting to visit Estonia, Latvia or Lithuania. The following flights are available for less than €100 r/t:

According to the promotion’s landing page, the sale ends on May 26, 2024. The travel period ends in December 2024, with actual availability depending on the destination. In some cases, prices get even cheaper in November, most likely because of declining demand during the cold Baltic winter.

You can use Google Flights to find more destinations or browse the aforementioned landing page. It comes with a price calendar, that allows you to preview prices for certain routes.

The cheapest tickets are available directly on airBaltic’s website, making booking there a no-brainer.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.
