Ryanair: we hope to develop Riga as a destination, not a transfer point

He noted that the two-aircraft base, which the airline plans to open in October this year, could help Ryanair increase its market share at Riga Airport to 20%, which is 12 percentage points more than in January-May this year.

Wilson cited market opening as the reason why Ryanair decided to open a base in Riga during the Covid-19 pandemic, as other airlines, unlike Ryanair, are currently reducing capacity, as well as 210 new aircraft ordered by the Irish airline that “need to fly”.

The airline representative also pointed out that, in his opinion, this was the right time to open a base in connection with Ryanair’s investments in other airports near Riga, such as Vilnius, Kaunas and Arlanda.

“It’s not just Riga, it’s the whole region. When you have planes in one place, it becomes very easy to connect several airports. The last time we talked about a base in Riga in 2009 or 2010 – then the city would be remote and it would not be easy to get this “critical mass,” Wilson said.

As reported, Ryanair plans to establish a two-aircraft base at Riga Airport. From October, when the new base will be ready, Ryanair group companies, including the subsidiary Buzz, will operate a total of 95 flights a week from Riga on 30 different routes.

The airline from Riga plans to offer flights on 16 new routes – five flights a week to Warsaw in Poland, four flights a week to Sandefjord in Norway, three flights a week to Aarhus in Denmark, Budapest in Hungary, Gothenburg in Sweden, Rome in Italy, and two flights a week to Bristol in the UK. Krakow in Poland, Kiev and Lviv in Ukraine, Malaga in Spain, Memmingen in Germany, Palermo in Italy, Paris in France, Frankfurt in Germany and Venice in Italy.

Megana Mārkla gave the first interview after the scandalous conversation with Opras Vinfrijs

The Duchess of Sussex, Megan, admitted that her greatest admirer of her literary work was her two-year-old son, Archie. It should be noted that the interview for NPR Weekend was recorded before the birth of Megan and Prince Harry’s daughter Lilibeta Diana.

During the conversation, the Duchess of Sussex said that she had presented a bench with a plaque to her husband on Father’s Day and had been “inspired” to write a poem when she saw Prince Harry nurse little Arcia in the garden.

Immediately after its publication, The Bench ranked among the best-selling children’s picture books in the New York Times, but Megan’s literary performance is much cooler in the UK. In the first week of sales, only 3,212 copies were purchased, which is a small number considering the 68 million inhabitants of the country. In England, readers have preferred Duchess Catherine’s compiled photo book, Still Still: A Portrait of Our Nation in 2020, which publishes the best photographs sent by the citizens to Prince William’s wife, showing how she survives the Covid-19 pandemic.

In a conversation with The Mirror, Tom Tivan, editor-in-chief of The Bookseller, said that although Megan’s book did not rank in the Top 50 in the first week, the numbers are not disappointing as fewer picture books are being bought, but the figures remain stable. over a longer period of time.

“I knew our son would love the book, and that’s great! He has an insatiable appetite for books. He constantly asks us to read to him again and again. I can proudly say: “Mom wrote the book” Bench “for you.” Wonderful feeling, ”said Megana Mārkla in a conversation with NPR producer Samants Balabans. “Every attentive reader will be able to find touching references that we have hidden there – including a drawing of my and my husband’s mother’s favorite flower – the memorable flower. There are many beloved and important nuances in this book and, of course, love. ”

One of the illustrations depicts the family of the Dukes of Sussex in the garden of his California mansion. In the drawing, you can see how Harry and his son feed the chickens and are accompanied by two dogs. “Last year, many of us had the opportunity to be alone with ourselves and to understand a lot in silence. At such times I looked at my husband and son through the window of our house. I saw how caring Harry was holding hands and driving Archia… These are incomparable emotions. It was at this point that the verses of the poem came to my mind. This is a true love story. It is about how important it is in childhood to have a close relationship with someone, so that there are close people around you who will support you in both good and bad times, ”Megana Mārkla concluded her story about the book.

On the other hand, events attended only by vaccinated and Covid-19 infected people have an unlimited number of visitors and do not have to follow these safety measures. Taking into account that more than 500 tickets have already been sold for symphonic music concerts, the organizers of “Rīga Jūrmala” have decided that the concerts can be attended on the first weekend of the festival, from 16 to 18 July, by presenting a digital Covid. -19 certificates.

However, taking care of the health and safety of visitors, artists and our team, we are forced to make a difficult decision within the limits set by the government. We are aware that the situation can change rapidly, and we are ready to adapt to make all concerts available to unvaccinated people, if in the remaining time before the festival new restrictions will be accepted and concerts for mixed audiences will be allowed without the number of visitors, ”explains the festival” Riga Jurmala ” Executive Director Zane Čulkstēna.

• If the existing ticket holders have questions or uncertainties about the concerts before the final decision on July 1, please contact us by writing to [email protected]

How has alcohol consumption changed in Latvia since the beginning of the pandemic?

How has alcohol consumption changed in Latvia since the beginning of the pandemic?

Compared to the data obtained at the beginning of April 2020, it can be concluded that now alcohol consumption has generally increased, as in the spring of last year or at the beginning of Covid-19 11% of respondents used alcohol more often (4% – significantly more often, 7% – slightly more often), 46% There was no change in consumption, 9% consumed less alcohol than usual at this time, while 33% of respondents indicated that they did not drink alcohol at all.

As the long Midsummer holidays approach, narcologist Ilze Maksima talks about the risks of excessive alcohol consumption.

Risks were, are and will be

The long-awaited Midsummer holidays are approaching, which, thanks to the more favorable epidemiological situation, many will be able to spend with family and friends. At the same time, the opportunity to meet people close to you can be overshadowed by an excessive passion for alcohol. Although the warm and sunny weather, as well as the easing of epidemiological restrictions, improves the general mood of the society and allows to focus on hobbies, sports and socialization that have been banned so far, the narcologist Ilze Maksima points out that the risks of alcohol use remain. Surrender to the “charm” of alcohol use is related to several factors – heredity, availability of alcohol, but the most important thing is to assess your individual risks. The specialist invites everyone to be aware of their last year’s drinking habits and answer some questions.

  • How often did I drink a bottle of wine and more or 0.2l and more of vodka, cognac, whiskey in one day or evening? If once a week and more often, it is very risky.
  • How often in the last year did you have to drink alcohol on the second day after drinking more to improve your well-being? If this happens, I would recommend that you see a specialist to assess your health.
  • How often in the last year have I not done something I had planned due to alcohol use? Once a month, my drinking habits have affected my social life and health.
  • Have any relatives or doctors expressed concern about my drinking habits? If so, then there is a reason for it to seem unpleasant, angry and shameful.

These are just some of the questions to look out for and to find out what to do when life returns to the “old tracks”. If the time of pandemic restrictions is spent with excessive alcohol consumption habits and risks, then it is worth considering whether perhaps the positive emotions could be experienced this time, so that the biopsychosocial components of health can return to normal.

Men use alcohol more often

BENU Pharmacy Stress thermometer data show that since the beginning of the pandemic, alcohol is generally more common among men. Among women, 15% of respondents use alcohol more often (5% – significantly more often, 10% – slightly more often), 39% did not notice any changes, 28% do not drink alcohol at all, 17% use less alcohol than before the pandemic, but 1% could not give a specific answer , while among the surveyed men 23% more often drink alcohol (9% – significantly more often, 14% – slightly more often), 38% did not notice any changes, 20% do not drink alcohol at all, 15% drink less than before the pandemic, but 3% gave a specific answer could not provide. I. Maksima explains that men are more at risk of making unfavorable choices in solving their emotional problems, therefore, due to the pandemic and various socio-economic factors, men consume more alcohol. At the same time, women are feeling the effects of alcohol faster and more, and their addiction is developing faster. Also during the pandemic, young people were at high risk of turning to alcohol, as their usual activities and opportunities for socialization were very limited.

Is it possible to “prepare” yourself for a drink?

Narcologist I. Maksima emphasizes that the very beginning of time is not to prepare for drinking, but to identify one’s risks and, as far as possible, not to drink alcohol at all. Non-alcoholic lemonades and unsweetened drinks are currently available, which will allow you to celebrate the holiday without the headaches and risks of alcohol consumption. Safe and harmless doses of alcohol are not available at all. However, if a decision is made to drink alcohol, it is important to define in good time what dose you would like to afford.

If a person does not have an alcohol control disorder, then this maximum dose can be defined, but if the control is lost, it can never be regained, so you should not drink at all.

From a health risk perspective, it is recommended that this dose should not exceed 0.2 liters of strong alcohol or 1.7 liters of beer or 0.6 liters of wine. At the same time, it is important to think about how to influence the rate of alcohol absorption, so it is important to eat wholesome foods and drink water. To gain more control, you can talk to a family member or friend who helps you “monitor” the amount of alcohol you drink, as well as phone applications that record the amount you drink and later display a summary of statistics.

What if you drink too much?

To avoid feeling unwell the next morning, the most important recommendation is not to drink alcohol or to consume it in reasonable doses. However, if you have consumed more alcohol than planned the night before, it is advisable to sleep well, be at rest, drink non-alcoholic fluids (preferably water) and eat a balanced diet. Also, the next day after alcohol consumption would not be recommended very physical activities, it would be better to engage in calmer activities – read a book, watch a movie, play board games together or go for a peaceful walk. I. Maxim calls for special caution in connection with the use of medicines, as this is not always necessary, and it is advisable to consult a doctor or pharmacist before taking medicines. It is important not to drink alcohol on the second day, as it is a sign of mental and physical dependence, in which case you should seek the help of a narcologist. Let’s celebrate the holiday responsibly!

The survey was conducted in cooperation with the Internet research company GEMIUS, surveying 1,747 respondents.
