FBO Riga celebrates three years in operation


FBO Riga Business Aviation Center has celebrated its third anniversary of operation at Riga International Airport (RIX) in Latvia.

The hub is a gateway to the east from Europe and the main arrival and departure point for the majority of business aviation flights in Latvia. In 2017, FBO Riga handled more than 4,000 passengers.

Roman Starkov, co-owner of FBO Riga, said, “FBO Riga is a unique project both in terms of architecture and the quality of service. We have put our soul in it, striving to create an exceptional atmosphere for every client to feel comfortable like at home.

“The hangar equipment and infrastructure are recognized as the most advanced in Eastern Europe. We are very proud of our customers’ feedback but we always raise the bar even higher to exceed their expectations.”

In 2018, the company expanded its services portfolio by launching helicopter charters in partnership with GM Helicopters, catering in cooperation with Resto-Rātors, in addition to a concierge service and luxury transfers.

Leonid Gorodnitski, co-owner of FBO Riga, added, “Individual approach, honesty and transparency are the keys to strong long-term relationships with customers. We will continue to evolve for the benefit of our customers and partners, and ensure the exceptional service, whether it is a flight preparation, a business meeting at the terminal, a helicopter transfer or a delivery of passenger’s favorite dish on board the aircraft.”

The FBO Riga Business Aviation Complex includes a terminal, 8400m² (90,400ft²) hangar, an apron with aircraft parking places, and a helipad.

The hangar is equipped for the storage and maintenance of business aircraft and can easily accommodate up to five Boeing Business Jets or nine Gulfstream G550s.
