Gabor Vasarhelyi, Corporate Communications Manager at the airline, said:
“2016 has been a memorable year for us in Lithuania: we celebrated our 5-year anniversary in Vilnius, started operations from two additional Lithuanian airports, Kaunas and Palanga and added several exciting destinations to our network. Today we are thrilled to deliver more great news to our Lithuanian customers as we will start flights from Vilnius to Gothenburg. We are confident that our customers will appreciate this low-fare connection to the second largest city of Sweden and this route will be as popular as the other 29 in our Lithuanian network.”
Indre Baltrusaitiene, Head of Communication and Marketing at Lithuanian airports, said:
“This year Wizz Air announced new routes from all three Lithuanian airports and we are really happy that we received one more route as a Christmas gift. Scandinavia is a priority market for our country, so the communication by air is really important for the development of our economy and tourism. We hope that the new route Vilnius-Gothenburg will help businessmen and tourists to travel between Lithuania and Sweden more convenient.”
