Aer Lingus Lithuania Bound
Ireland's national airline 'Aer Lingus' has announced that they are launching a new service to Lithuania. Aer Lingus will be providing the service from May onwards, beginning with thrice weekly flights from Dublin to Vilnius.
The move comes in the wake of popular services linking Dublin with Polish cities such as Warsaw and Krakow. Specially reduced fares will be on offer to mark the the launch of the Vilnius link.
Enda Corneille, Aer Lingus Commercial Director, said of the plans:
The introduction of thesenew routes reaffirms Aer Lingus commitment to providing direct, low fares access to new destinations as well as providing real growth opportunities in inbound tourism from emerging markets. We have seen particularly strong customer demand for services to Eastern Europe and this year commenced a Dublin to Poznan service as well as expanding capacity on routes to Warsaw, Krakow and Riga. We are delighted that the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius is to be servedby Aer Lingus, and we expect to see strong growth on both of these new destinations.
