Riga Airport planning LCCT, to resolve issues with airBaltic

Latvia’s Riga International Airport new Chairman Arnis Luhse stated his main priorities are to increase passenger comfort through the construction of an LCCT and reaching an out-of-court settlement with airBaltic (Baltic Course, 15-Dec-2010). Mr Luhse declined to comment on whether the airport will consider revising the fees it charges airBaltic, the main reason behind their conflict. However, he admitted “it must not be that two major state-owned enterprises are in conflict, and a way must be found for them to successfully cooperate”.
