Summer connection to link Billund and Vilnius

Air Lituanica to also fly to Gothenburg and Malmo

A few days after revealing routes between the Lithuanian capital Vilnius and the Swedish cities of Göteborg and Malmö, the Vilnius-based airline Air Lituanica has announced it will add one more destination to its summer-season schedule – to the Danish city of Billund.

This destination shall become the ninth European city that can be reached from Vilnius International Airport with Air Lituanica.

“Currently, the number of Danish tourists to Lithuania ceased to increase therefore we hope that new flights performed three times a week shall open up more possibilities for the Danish to visit Lithuania for a short holiday or a weekend break and discover our wonderful tourist sights,” said the head of Lithuania’s tourist board, Dr Raimonda Balniene.

“Billund is located in the central part of the country, from there it is easy to reach the second largest Danish city Aarhus as well as Odense and Aalborg, the third and fourth biggest cities,” said Air Lituanica’s commercial chief Simonas Bartkus. “Our intention is to carry 4,000 passengers via the new route over the summer and reinforce tourism and business relations between both countries.”

The Vilnius-Billund flights will be operated between June 16 and August 28, on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
