For the past few months, the airport and the airline have been engaged in an ongoing conflict over LVL 5mn debt of airBaltic to RIX and airBaltic claiming LVL 7mn from RIX in damages due to unfair tariffs's's policy that the airport allegedly used. Two companies were close to signing a memorandum settling the conflict, but failed to do so. airBaltic agreed on pre-paying for the airport's'ss services, but also called for an independent auditor to evaluate RIX tariff's'ss structure and to conclude whether it is discriminatory against airBaltic.
