From early autumn this year, Vilnius Airport will be partnering with Ukraine International Airlines and Wizz Air to offer passengers new direct routes to a variety of European destinations.
Ukraine International Airlines will be offering direct flights to Lviv, the largest city in Western Ukraine, and Wizz Air will be introducing direct flights to Bari in Southern Italy, Iceland’s capital Reykjavik, and Grenoble in the French Alps.
Launched last on 16 September, flights to and from Lviv occur on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. A one-way trip takes around 1.5 hours with a Boeing 737-500 aircraft.
The new Wizz Air routes follow last month’s addition of Nice as a direct destination to and from Vilnius. The service connects the Lithuanian capital to the capital of the French Riviera with two weekly flights on Wednesdays and Sundays. The largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe will launch their Bari and Reykjavik routes in October, and will commence service to Grenoble in January 2017.
Wizz Air now offers a total of 32 routes to 14 countries from the three Lithuanian airports, providing affordable access between the country and the rest of Europe for both business and leisure travellers.
In total 18 airline companies operate 45 direct flights to Vilnius at the moment.
