On 29 October 2015 Scandinavian airlines SAS
launches a new Oslo – Vilnius route. SAS passengers will be offered
four weekly flights on this route: on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and
“During the last few years economic partnership between Norway and
Lithuania was rapidly developing and has gained significant momentum:
currently there are over 200 Norwegian capital companies in Lithuania
that employ over 11 000 people. Growing business cooperation between the
two countries became major encouragement to SAS for opening a new route
Oslo - Vilnius. For the start, we will offer our passengers four weekly
flights, while in the future we might increase the frequency”, said
Rūta Jucienė, SAS General Manager Baltic States and Russia.
At the break of this year, i.e. during the winter holidays’ season,
SAS was operating direct flights between Oslo and Vilnius. This route
was particularly popular among Lithuanian emigrants living and working
in Norway. This became yet another reason for opening the new SAS route
between these two capital cities.
SAS passengers from Vilnius will have convenient connections via Oslo
to other Norwegian cities such as Bergen, Bodo, Evenes, Haugesund,
Molde, Stavanger, Trondheim, Tromso, and others.
Flights between the Norwegian and Lithuanian capital cities will be operated by Boeing 737-700 offering 141 seats.
In total, Scandinavian Airlines SAS are operating 46 weekly flights
between the main airports in Scandinavia and Lithuania. This includes 19
weekly flights between Vilnius and Copenhagen and 14 weekly flights
between Vilnius and Stockholm, as well as 13 weekly flights between
Palanga and Copenhagen. After October 29, when SAS opens a new Oslo –
Vilnius route, company will be operating 50 weekly flights in Lithuania
