With an initial seat capacity of 93,000 seats, the new route is expected to stimulate the aviation and hospitality sectors in Lithuania.
Since its first flight from Vilnius in 2011, Wizz Air has carried nearly three million Lithuania passengers, becoming the leading airline at Vilnius International Airport. Underlining its commitment to Lithuania, Wizz Air recently added Palanga to its low-fare route network and, with the new Kaunas service, now offers 25 routes to 13 countries from its three Lithuanian airports.
“We are delighted to announce operations from our third Lithuanian airport, Kaunas, bringing more low fares to the country. With our new service to London Luton, our Lithuania passengers can avail of another link to the UK capital, while the five weekly frequencies provide a convenient schedule for both business and leisure trips,” Wizz Air Communications Manager Gabor Vasarhelyi said.
