@chrisoram Hi Chris, please check this link: regarding your query. Thank You. AA
Until 1 January 2012 the security function at Riga International Airport was financed from the state budget which means that the security services were paid for by all the taxpayers in Latvia, including those who seldom or never travel by air. As the Cabinet of Ministers of Latvia has adopted a decision not to finance the security at the airport with the state budget funds any more, new Cabinet Regulation No 823 was issued „On the charges for security and rescue measures carried out on the airfield ”. The new Regulation stipulates that the security charge from now on will be collected from passengers.
