LOT Polish Airlines will resume service between the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius and London City Airport from 31 August.
“After very difficult times of lockdown and suspension of international air travels caused by the global pandemic, we observe an increased passenger demand for international travels,” said LOT spokesperson Krzysztof Moczulski.
“Therefore, by the end of this summer we would like to invite onboard passengers who regularly travel between Lithuania and Great Britain.
“The reintroduced flights are expected to attract a lot of interest and contribute to a strengthening of relations between Lithuania and Great Britain.”
Flights will be operated as many as 12 times per week by modern Embraer 190 jets, and tickets are now available.
“We are delighted to welcome back LOT and the Vilnius route. For the significant Lithuanian community in East London, this will provide an opportunity to travel home from their local airport,” said Richard Hill, chief commercial officer of London City Airport.
“And for Londoners, Vilnius and Lithuania represent great options for a late summer getaway.”
