direct flights again between Vilnius and Schiphol Airport. I am certain
that this will contribute to the strengthening of our economic and cultural

“We gave a promise to our passengers that Amsterdam
would make its way to our flight map, and half a year later you can already buy
tickets to the capital of the Netherlands,” says Air Lituanica Commerce Director
Simonas Bartkus. He adds that the Amsterdam route fills a huge gap in the map
of direct flights of Vilnius Airport and expands the connection with Lithuania
from various corners of the world.
