During the winter season, 18 airlines will operate flights to 76 destinations; among them is Laudamotion Austrian low-cost airport, which will start its service from Riga Airport to the Austrian capital of Vienna and will offer four flights weekly.



To make the time spent at the Airport enjoyable and carefree, we are kindly inviting passengers to arrive at the Airport at least two hours before their flight.

The beginning of check-in depends on airline requirements and the number of passengers for the flight.

Some airlines have introduced a charge for checking in at the airport and/or online.
When booking a ticket, please find out more about the airline’s checking-in rules.

Check-in ends 30 - 40 minutes before departure, later check-in and departure may be denied. For major flights, especially, when flights are full up, check-in ends 40 minutes before departure. Please, consult your airline, if you require further details.

Boarding starts 30 to 20 minutes before departure or even 40 minutes before departure for major flights. Boarding gates close no later than 10 minutes before departure. At this moment all passengers should be on board and the doors of the aircraft should be closed. For different airlines time may vary from 20 to 8 minutes before departure.

Why punctuality is so important? First of all, to allow the aircraft leave on schedule. Even a few minutes delay causes considerable loss for airlines; therefore aircrafts are not delayed without a serious reason.

During the period from the end of check-in up to departure the last passengers manage to pass through passport control and security control and arrive for boarding on time; luggage loaders manage to load checked luggage in the aircraft; check-in collects data on the number and weight of passengers and baggage; catering company prepares and delivers the necessary number of catering to the aircraft; flight coordinators prepare aircraft weight and balance sheet required upon aircraft take-off and landing.

When all the passengers are on board, in the winter season aircraft anti/de-icing is carried out, so that external mechanisms of aircraft wings and tail move freely and do not freeze.

For that reason we would very much appreciate passengers arriving for check-in and boarding early enough.

In case you have questions or complaints please call RIGA International Airport inquiries service 1817 (pay call).
