In Q1 of 2010, passenger flow at the airport increased 10 per cent (285,980) compared to Q1 of 2009, and the growth of the number of passengers is becoming even more rapid.

"The market is undergoing a revival and this influences the results achieved by the airport. In early 2010, flights to Milan, Berlin, Munich, Paris, Amsterdam, and Rome were introduced and the number of flights to Copenhagen increased. Following the introduction of the summer timetable, the list of destinations will be supplemented with new destinations such as Hamburg, Edinburgh, Iraklion, Ibiza, and Palermo and the number of flights to Dublin, Tallinn, Paris, Berlin, and Warsaw will increase", Tomas Vaišvila, general manager of Vilnius International Airport, said.

According to Mr Vaišvila, a new wave of flights is expected in May: the number of flights to Kiev, Copenhagen, Oslo, and Dublin will go up; flights to St Girona will be resumed;

In Q1, the most popular destinations from Vilnius were Copenhagen, Riga, Prague, London, Dublin, Frankfurt, Helsinki, Warsaw, Moscow, and Vienna.

Vilnius International Airport plans to serve 2 million passengers this year.
