How old are Lithuanian airports – 1 or 100?

November was full of good news at the Lithuanian airports – after seeing off the first passengers from Kaunas to the Red Sea resort Eilat, we announced about three new routes to be launched next year. Spring will open new horizons for Western Lithuanian residents – direct flights will connect the Lithuanian seaside and Warsaw; a long-awaited flight to London Luton Airport will be opened as well. Next summer we will also have a chance to see the aircrafts that we have never seen before over Vilnius – the German airline Germania will operate flights to Zürich, whereas the Spanish airline Vueling will fly to Barcelona.


We are not going to relax in December as well. You are welcome to pay a visit to the airports even if you are not planning to travel. We will listen to jazz, explore history and celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Lithuanian airports. Interested? Come and we will tell you more – after all, it is even more joyful to wait for Christmas together!
