Ryanair expands flight geography from Lithuania


Irish airline plans to launch flights from Vilnius in near future

The low-cost carrier Ryanair has announced that it will launch direct flights between Kaunas and Bremen from July 1, flying on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The new route appears to be expanding the company's geography, Kauno Diena writes, since so far the focus from Lithuania has been on Great Britain. The article adds that the Irish airline hopes to launch flights from Vilnius in the near future. Tomas Vaisvila, the new chief of Vilnius International Airport, says that Ryanair has already presented plans and principles for such activities to the Lithuanian Ministry of Transport and Communications. Traditionally, however, major airports serving European capitals are sceptical about hosting low-cost airlines and such a move could frighten off other airlines. A solution could lie in a possible merger of Vilnius, Kaunas and Palanga airports into a single enterprise, Kauno Diena concludes.
