Travel to Latvia

Riga International Airport (RIX) is the busiest airport in the Baltic states and the main hub airport of the Latvia's national airline - airBaltic. RIX has daily connections to the main European hub airports, such as Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Brussels, London, as well as other frequent lay-over destinations, such as Helsinki, Warsaw and Munich.

We encourage the participants to book their travel as soon as they have received the confirmation of their participation in the school to ensure that they can book the most convenient travel option.

In addition, daily bus travel is possible between Rīga and other cities in the Baltics, such as Tallinn, Vilnius and Kaunas. Additionally there are daily bus options between Rīga and Warsaw, but keep in mind that this trip usually takes between 13 and 14 hours.

NB! When booking your travel, please, keep in mind that we can only guarantee reimbursement from COST Action CA22130 - COMETA, for the duration of the event + 1 night; if your travel booking requires an extra hotel stay both for arrival to and departure from the event, only one of these hotel bookings can be guaranteed to be reimbursed.
