Currently SAS is operating 24
weekly flights between Stockholm and Vilnius: two flights per day on the
weekdays, and one flight per day on Saturdays and Sundays. Due to additional

via Arlanda airport to the USA and the biggest European cities (London, Paris,
Brussels, Amsterdam, Dublin, etc.) as well as Scandinavian ones, e.g. to Oslo.
“Additional frequency on SAS
route between Stockholm and Vilnius is our response to the business travellers’
from Lithuania need to reach their place of destination as early in the morning
as possible. Meantime, our customers flying on Copenhagen-Vilnius route already
have this opportunity”, pointed out Rūta Jucienė, SAS General Manager Baltic
