New Flights to Vilnius Revealed
The largest low cost airline to be servicing Europe, Wizz Air, has revealed that it will open a new base of operations in Vilnius. The Lithuanian capital will be host to the budget airline's 14th such base, expanding the services that are available with the company more than ever before.
With Eastern Europe becoming more of an attraction among adventuresome Brits, accessibility to this part of the globe has greatly increased over the past few years. Now Europe's largest low fare carrier has revealed that eight new routes will be added alongside the opening of its new base, offering travellers more options for jetting from one country to the next.
Starting from 16th April 2011, the carrier's new Airbus A320 will be deployed initially to service the new routes. British routes include those between Vilnius and Doncaster Sheffield, and London Luton, providing UK residents with easy travel to Lithuania. Meanwhile, Barcelona, Rome, Milan, Cork, Eindhoven, and Stockholm will also benefit from new services.
Speaking of the new base, Wizz Air chief executive officer, Jozsef Varadi, said "The opening of the Vilnius base will allow many people to enjoy our truly low fares coupled with excellent Wizz travel experience."
He added that the company was extremely excited to be offering new travel options to and from Lithuania, which would in turn help create a large number of jobs in the region. Starting in 2011, the new services will also allow a large number of Europeans to take advantage of quick and easy access to the capital city, offering yet another destination for holidaymakers to explore, whether a long weekend or short break.
