Lithuanian passengers can now enjoy regular flights between Athens (Greece) and Vilnius Airport with the new airline Aegean Airlines. During the official launch event, Aegean Airlines' representative emphasized that this route is an excellent option for leisure travelers to regularly access Greece and its islands.

"We are delighted to launch a new direct flight between Athens and Vilnius. This route reflects our commitment to expanding our operations in the Baltic region. Lithuanian passengers from Vilnius can travel directly to Athens twice a week, and then onwards to other Greek, European, and Middle Eastern destinations via our extensive network," commented Dirk Steffensen, Aegean Airlines representative.

It is important to note that regular flights will be operated twice a week on Airbus A320 aircraft.

Simonas Bartkus, CEO of Lithuanian Airports, stressed that the Greek airline will join the growing ranks of traditional airlines at the capital's airport.

"It is crucial for us as an airport to ensure that our country's travelers have a more convenient way to reach popular holiday destinations. It is also important that a significant portion of passengers can conveniently use connecting flights through the Greek capital and reach an even wider range of countries or regions around the world," said Simonas Bartkus, CEO of Lithuanian Airports.

Aegean Airlines has become the 10th legacy airline to operate flights at Vilnius Airport. The airline is the national Greek carrier, which in 2023 offered a total of 180 different destinations in 49 countries within its network.

Aegean Airlines plans to operate flights on the Vilnius-Athens route until October.
