One step closer – Lithuanian Airports have signed an agreement with runway reconstruction contractors

Vilnius Airport runway reconstruction that will take place this summer is inevitably coming and we are carefully preparing for it! We signed an agreement with runway reconstruction contractors – the consortium of the companies led by the Latvian company A.C.B.

By signing this agreement we are taking the next phase of the project. At the beginning of March, preparatory works will start at Vilnius Airport. These works will prepare airport area for the main reconstruction that will take place from July 14.

After 35 days, on August 18 passengers will meet Vilnius airport with the runway, reconstructed from the essence. With regular runway maintenance, we will be able to ensure flights safety for the next 20 years!
