Wizz Air continues its substantial investment in Malmö Airport and Sweden’s southern province of Scania. Today, April 24, the carrier is launching a new route from Malmö Airport to Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. The destination will be served two days a week, on Mondays and Fridays.

Vilnius is beautifully situated on the banks of the river Neris. The oldest parts of the city, which is included on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites, usually charm visitors with their medieval houses and opulent churches. The Old Town also offers a variety of restaurants, cafés and charming shops.

“We welcome Wizz Air’s new route to Vilnius from Malmö Airport and the Swedish province of Scania. Travel between the two countries will increase, and I think many people from this part of Sweden will take the opportunity to discover Lithuania as a tourist destination as early as this spring and summer,” says Peter Weinhandl, airport director at Malmö Airport.

“The news that Wizz Air will begin flying the Vilnius–Malmö route comes as a happy surprise,” says Eitvydas Bajarunas, Lithuania’s ambassador in Stockholm. “We need more links between our countries. Now it will be easier for tourists and business travellers to get between Scania and Lithuania in order to discover the nature, culture and history of each country. Scania is home to many people from Lithuania, and I would like to thank Wizz Air, which is offering this opportunity of non-stop service.”

The route will be flown by an Airbus A320 with seating for 180 passengers. The plan departs from Malmö Airport for Vilnius Mondays and Fridays at 8.05 p.m. Flying time is estimated at one hour and 30 minutes, with the plane arriving around 10.30 p.m. local time.
