Happy 2019!

Happy New Year!

Thanks for a fantastic 2018 to all our pilots and ATCOs.
Your hard work and time meant we were able to welcome over 1,500 more pilots to Riga in 2018 than in 2017!

From this year, the Tower controller will no longer speak the frequency of Approach controller with a take-off clearance.
Instead, it is the pilot’s responsibility to switch to EVRA_APP (or EVRA_B_APP if online) before passing altitude 1,500ft (or as soon as is reasonably practical).
Please ensure you are following this procedure which has been published in AIP and every chart for some years already.
In addition: if you receive no instructions after landing, switch to Riga Ground (118.805) when runway vacated.
