Having been handed a press pack on the aircraft I duly opened this up and proceeded to browse the lineup for the following day’s conference “North Hub Riga.”On arrival, myself and a handful of other journalists were met by Ketrina, our representative from airBaltic, who immediately led us to a waiting car. We were then driven through the warm evening to the Latvian National Opera, where we were to watch a magnificent performance of Giacomo Puccini’s Il Trittico. A thoroughly pleasant way to spend the first evening.
