Riga International Airport lost 180 000 passengers
Riga International Airport in the first half of 2012 handled 2.241 million passengers, almost 180,000 passengers less than during the same period in 2011.
The biggest passenger flow in the second quarter was from German airports – 171,700 passengers (+4.3%), UK – 128.4 thousand passengers (-15.4%), Russia – 119.5 thousand passengers (13, 5%).
