Two new European routes for Stansted

Stansted Airport is to welcome two new routes to Europe later this month with the arrival of services from Aegean Airlines and Lithuanian Airlines (flyLAL).

Aegean Airlines will launch two daily flights to the Greek capital of Athens, while the Lithuania flag carrier will commence its first direct flights from Stansted to Vilnius.

The Aegean flights have been timed to allow passengers to make connections with the carrier’s domestic services to other Greek destinations.

Lithuanian’s new service follows the introduction of weekly flights from Stansted to the amber coast resort of Palanga earlier this month.

Commenting on the Athens and Viliuns services, the airport’s strategy and solutions director Nick Barton said: "Stansted offers more direct scheduled connections throughout Europe than any other airport in the UK and we’re delighted to be extending those links further."

These two new services are the latest in flight expansions at Stansted with Ryanair due to roll out direct connections to Rimini in Italy and the Mediterranean holiday destination of Beziers next month.
