Latvia’s Spare Travel appoints AVIAREPS as its representative in the Middle East

Nov 16 2017

AVIAREPS has been appointed by Latvia’s Spare Travel, a luxury, customer-focused tour operator and Destination Management Company (DMC), as its representative in Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Spare Travel’s international outreach programme provides customised, VIP travel solutions for Middle Eastern travellers seeking authentic, unique and bespoke Northern European travel experiences. The appointment is also timely as it was made on the heals of the launch by airBaltic airlines of direct non-stop flights from Abu Dhabi to Latvia’s capital Riga on October 30, 2017.

To celebrate the launch, Spare Travel is offering special promotional travel packages to discover Latvia based on the themes of Castles, Chocolate and Culture. The packages include three nights stay in Riga’s old town, complimentary entry into Latvia’s famous Laima Chocolate Museum, with a guided tour of the museum and a visit to the chocolate workshop, entry into the Ethnographic Open-Air Museum of Latvia, and an overnight stay at Latvia’s Birinu Castle.

Ivonna Kezbere, Director, SPARE Travel said: “Latvia, the Baltic States, Scandinavia and Finland have so much to offer travellers throughout the year, from soft adventure to extreme sports, wellness to nightlife, historical attractions to modern art museums, and family attractions to those focused on couples or even business groups.”

Glenn Johnston, General Manager, AVIAREPS Middle East said: “With Latvia’s excellent accessibility and superb value for money experiences, I’m confident the Baltic States as travel destinations will soon become a trending ‘dinner party’ topic throughout the Gulf region. To this end, we are extremely excited to partner with SPARE Travel to offer meaningful and thoughtful travel experiences and services that acknowledge, understand and can cater to the needs and demands of a very sophisticated and well-travelled Middle Eastern outbound travel market.”
