Arriving in Riga is fairly simple these days. The bus and train stations are located right on the edge of Old Riga and the airport is only a short cab or bus ride away.
If you decided to travel by plane, then you can use Airbaltic . Our national air operator, provides very reasonable prices to 24 direct flights to and from Riga and 11 from Vilnius.The number of AirBaltic flights to and from Riga, connected with its strategic

Distance from the airport to the centre of Riga is 13 km. You can hire a taxi: 10 - 15 Lats, time of a taxi-ride 15 - 20 minutes. You can go by bus: 0,20 Lats, the approximate time of a bus-ride 40 minutes, departs every 15 - 30 minutes. (Bus service - choose bus lines 22, 22A)
You can travel by bus or by car, thereby visiting the neighbouring countries too.
