Although we are working hard on licensing the fuel station, the process takes a lot. In the vicinity of Riga you have two options:
1) Refuel in Tukums airport (technical landing fee for C172 would be EUR 5,60, preferable 24h PPR, phone +37163119119)
2) Refuel in Riga International Airport, arranging the refueling beforehand with ground handling (+37129233018) and fuel company (+37167207037) so that the process takes no more than 1h (technical landing fee for C172 would be EUR 50, if more than 1h on ground - EUR 80)
