The selection of the new CEO will be carried out by the Ministry of Transport and Communications, the owner of Lithuanian Airports. The last working day of G. Almantas as the CEO of the air gateway will be 1 March 2018.
“I have been the head of Lithuanian Airports from the establishment of the company three and a half years ago. I leave this post due to a personal decision, which I made without anyone’s suggestions. I will continue my work at the airports as one of the members of the Board,” says G. Almantas.
G. Almantas has been working in the system of Lithuanian Airports for 4.5 years. Before becoming the CEO of Lithuanian Airports, we was the head of Vilnius Airport for a year. According to his decision and personal ambition, the three air gateways of Lithuania were efficiently combined into one network.

This achievement was made possible by Gediminas, so we are grateful to him for these years and for his devotion to his work demonstrated during that time. I know that after moving to a different management level and becoming a member of the board, he will continue to create value for Lithuanian Airports,” says Rokas Masiulis, the Minister of Transport and Communications.

Almantas will continue working on the Board of Airports Council International Europe (ACI Europe) and representing the country’s interests.
