Wizz Air, the largest low fare, low cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe today commenced its latest service from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) with a flight to Vilnius, the capital city of Lithuania.

Flights to and from Liverpool now operate twice weekly on Mondays and Fridays departing at 12:55. Flights depart from Vilnius back to Liverpool at 11:15am.

This new destination becomes Wizz Air’s fourth route to be served from Liverpool having commenced operations from here in late 2004, complementing the airline’s flights operating to Warsaw, Gdansk and Katowice in Poland.

This latest addition to the network of European cities served directly from LJLA, means that the Airport offers the region’s passengers comprehensive links with all the major cities in the Baltic states, complementing existing services to Tallinn in Estonia, Riga in Latvia and Kaunas also in Lithuania.

Vilnius is already proving popular as a value for money, City break destination for travellers who are on the lookout for new locations to explore. It is a modern, cosmopolitan European City with diverse architecture and a historical City Centre with timings of flights from and to Liverpool ideal for passengers looking to get away for a weekend break.

Like Liverpool, Vilnius is a former European Capital of Culture having taken over this status jointly with Linz in Austria in 2009, after Liverpool’s success the year before.

Wizz Air’s Corporate Communications Manager, Daniel de Carvalho, said:
"We are delighted with this new route from Liverpool John Lennon Airport. Our commitment is to deliver value for money routes at LJLA and with Vilnius we now offer low fares to one of the best kept secrets in the Baltics."
