North America. It's an easy connection with one stop in a major western European hub like Frankfurt or Amsterdam. The local airline Air Baltic connects Latvia to all major European cities, and as far away as Iceland and Dubai. Ryanair also has a base here for short trips around Europe. - Mar 2022

We have not returned to the U.S. since arriving in Riga. To get here, we traveled from Washington Dulles to Riga via Frankfurt. The total trip took about 15 hours, including a long layover in Frankfurt. Riga has many flights daily/weekly to other large European cities. - Sep 2016

From Washington, it's an overnight flight to one of the European hubs and then a few hours on to Riga. - Jul 2010
