Lithuanian Airports Began the Winter Season Optimistically

The winter season started with the early snow and the opening of new routes. This year, it is possible to fly from Vilnius Airport directly to Reykjavík, Leeds, and Malta; alpine skiing lovers will be happy to know that in January flights to Grenoble at the foot of the French Alps will be offered to them.

Changes await travellers going from the capital city to Oslo because Oslo Rygge Airport is closing business and flights from Vilnius will land in Gardermoen Airport, which will be closer to the centre of the capital of Norway.

In Kaunas, flights to the Norwegian cities Stavanger, Bergen, and Ålesund began; slightly earlier, Eindhoven was added to directly accessible cities. Resumed flights to London Stansted Airport replaced the previously organised flights to London Gatwick. In addition, aeroplanes fly from Kaunas to Eilat, a resort in Israel near the Red Sea that is becoming more and more popular.

Although the winter season is a challenging time for airports and airlines, we do our best to make sure that passengers who wait for their flights have a great time before they even board the plane. We are looking forward to seeing you at Lithuanian Airports!
