LGS sets new record in number of flights managed in a day
Of those, 663 were transit flights, while 337 were flights to and from Riga airport.
“Results from the first months of 2017 demonstrate positive trends in aviation. Airlines are using the Latvian airspace more often, because they appreciate the high-quality and safe air navigation services provided by LGS and its competitive tariffs. The introduction of the free route airspace (FRA) has also has a positive effect, allowing airlines to choose the best flight routes through the 5 NEFAB countries,” says Dāvids Tauriņš, Chairman of the Board at LGS.
Previously the largest number of flights served in a day was reached on 12 August 2016, when LGS air traffic controllers managed 887 flights.
