Low-cost airline Wizz Air will launch flights to London Luton from its new base in Vilnius, Lithuania.
The Hungarian-based airline will establish its 14th base in the Lithuanian capital, where it will base a brand new Airbus A320 aircraft from April 16th.
In addition to London Luton, Wizz Air will introduce flights to Doncaster-Sheffield, Cork, Eindhoven, Stockholm-Skavsta, Milan-Bergamo, Rome-Fiumicino and Barcelona from Vilnius.
Flights to London and Doncaster-Sheffield will be operated five times a week and twice a week respectively, with both routes commencing on April 17th.
Jozsef Varadi, Wizz Air’s chief executive officer, said the airline is "extremely delighted" to meet its latest expansion milestone.
"The opening of the Vilnius base will allow many people to enjoy our truly low fares coupled with excellent Wizz travel experience," he commented.
"Beyond further enhancing the travel opportunities in the Lithuanian market, we will create hundreds of local jobs and significant revenue uplift for the local tourism industry."
On December 16th, Wizz Air will launch direct flights to Brno, the Czech Republic’s second-largest city, from London Luton.
