Have you already packed for your holidays?

Though the summer season in aviation began in the end of March, June marks the start of most of seasonal flights, and the airports are filled with happy people wearing sun hats and ready to apply sunscreen – after all, they are about to start their holidays! As many as four airlines will launch flights at Lithuanian airports this month - Germania and Vueling will fly to Vilnius; Belavia and Ukraine International Airlines will operate to Palanga. Popular routes Vilnius-Odessa and Palanga-Moscow will be re-launched very soon as well.

So, book your tickets, pack your luggage, and we will meet you at Lithuanian airports and accompany you to the plane heading to your most fabulous holiday destination!
