The Moroccan National Tourist Office (ONMT) and airBaltic have agreed to link Riga, the Latvian capital, with Agadir, Morocco. airBaltic will launch the Riga-Agadir route with a weekly flight every Saturday starting from November 4th.

Adel El Fakir, the General Manager of ONMT, stated that securing air connections with Northern European markets is crucial for destinations like Agadir. Negotiations are underway to establish additional flights to sustain tourism during the upcoming winter season.

Following the launch of direct flights to Agadir from Riga, the Latvian airline airBaltic now operates two destinations in Morocco. The carrier also offers flights connecting Riga and Marrakech, with services scheduled on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

The agreement between ONMT and airBaltic is in addition to the recently signed agreement between ONMT and Scandinavian Airlines (SAS), which provides direct flights connecting Agadir to Copenhagen in Denmark and Stockholm in Sweden.

The ONMT is utilizing the Baltic countries basin to activate air travel and further enhance the appeal of Agadir as a destination to ensure maximum capacity for the upcoming winter season. These initiatives are aligned with ONMT’s 2026 “Light in Action” action plan, which aims to establish Morocco as one of the top 10 travel destinations globally.
