WIZZ AIR ARRIVES IN KAUNAS

Kaunas, 29 March 2016: Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, today launched operations from Kaunas Airport.

With an annual seat capacity of 93,000 seats, the new route is expected to stimulate aviation and hospitality sectors in Lithuania, while allowing Kaunas passengers to travel on WIZZ’s low fares to the United Kingdom.

Wizz Air has recently announced it will add four new services to its Kaunas network by launching a new route to Eindhoven from 22 September, and moving three of its Norway routes from Vilnius to Kaunas starting from 30 October.

Since its first flight from Vilnius in 2011, Wizz Air has become the leading airline at Vilnius International Airport. Wizz Air has now four aircraft and 125 direct employees based in the Lithuanian capital. Underlining its commitment to the country, in 2015 the airline announced operations from Kaunas and Palanga, while its nearly one million Lithuania passengers during the calendar year 2015 supported over 700 indirect local jobs.

With its newest services, Wizz Air now offers a total of 28 routes to 14 countries from its three Lithuanian airports. Seats on the new routes are already on sale and can be booked on wizzair.com from EUR 19.99*.

Gabor Vasarhelyi, Communications Manager at Wizz Air said:

“The first WIZZ flight took off from Vilnius in 2011 and since then, we have carried over three million passengers on our Lithuania routes. Last week we announced further expansion of our Lithuania network and launched operations from Palanga. Today we are thrilled to start flights from Kaunas, our third Lithuanian airport, where we now offer five low-fare routes to three countries. Our friendly crew looks forward to welcoming you on board a WIZZ flight with a smile!”

Bruno Kaspar, Director of Kaunas airport said:

“Today Kaunas became another Wizz Air spot in Lithuania. Kaunas Airport has been waiting for the new winds for a long time and there will be no lack of them now. The coming of the Hungarian airline will expand travel opportunities and the improve transport links between Great Britain and Lithuania.”
