Ryanair aims for 34 routes in Lithuania

The low-cost carrier’s winter 2019 schedule includes a new route for each of the country’s three international airports.

Ryanair has announced its winter 2019 schedule for Lithuania, with 34 routes in total at the Baltic country’s three international airports.

These include a new winter service from second city Kaunas to Edinburgh, a route from the capital Vilnius to Tel Aviv, and flights between London Stansted and Palanga on Lithuania’s coast.

All three routes are to be operated twice weekly and “will help deliver two million customers per annum”, the airline says.

“Lithuanian consumers and visitors can now book their holidays as far out as March 2020, on even lower fares,” Ryanair claims, citing its new “2019 customer care improvements”.

These improvements include “lowest fares – find a cheaper fare within three hours and get paid the difference” plus a €5 credit, the airline promises.
