The Baltic States and Scandinavia recently gained a valuable asset to attract more business aviation traffic with opening of FBO RIGA Business Aviation Center at Riga International (RIX).

        

“Latvia has a huge potential for the development of business aviation due to the country’s geographical location,”  FBO RIGA Co-Owner Leonid Gorodnitski. “For example, one can easily reach Stockholm, Berlin, Moscow and other European and CIS business centers just within one hour and a half of flight from Riga.”

According to Co-Owner Roman Starkov, the opening of the Center will increase the company’s handling capacity by 35% at the airport, adding that FBO RIGA already handled a 60% of all busines aviation flights passing through RIX. “We are in negotiations with BizAv operators about aircraft basing & handling at Riga.”

The Center’s total surface is 130,000 sq ft, comprising of a 12.900 sq ft modern BizAv terminal, featuring seating areas, VIP meeting rooms, a bar and even an art gallery, in addition to a conference room,  dispatch & OCC. Another 90.416 sq ft are dedicated to a hangar, allowing accommodation for up to five BBJ, nine Gulfstream 550 or 20 Learjet 60 series.  A large apron and helipad are located adjacent to the terminal.

Part of Flight Consulting Group, FBO RIGA aims at becoming a complete one-stop-shop for aircraft, passengers and crew travelling through RIX, now offering a full range of ground handling services, but plans are already underway to include MRO services as well. Total investment of the company amounted close to $14 million.
