Hopes of air traffic revival in Vilnius “naive”


Experts say Lithuanian aviation market will stay down for some time

Vilnius International Airport is providing half the number of flights this summer season as it did last summer. The Lithuanian Ministry of Transport and Communications says it is doing its best to find new airlines, but it would be naive to assume that such attempts could rescue the country from its poor connections with the global air transport market. Andrius Sideravicius, head of the travel agency West Express, is convinced that the air travel crisis has not hit bottom yet and that the demand for flights will keep decreasing. Kestutis Auryla, director of Lithuania’s Civil Aviation Administration, says that the aviation market will start to revive only when the economy starts to show signs of revival. He is convinced that under the current situation no airport discounts will help to attract airlines, or a new national carrier.
