Wizzair to launch Vilnius flights from Luton and Sheffield

16 Nov 2010 by BusinessTraveller

The low-cost airline is to launch a base at Vilnius airport following the demise of Lithuanian carrier Star1 Airlines. Routes will include London Luton, Cork and Doncaster-Sheffield.

The Hungarian carrier will launch its new base on April 16, with a total of eight routes to Luton, Cork, Eindhoven, Stockholm-Skavsta, Milan-Bergamo, Rome-Fiumicino, Barcelona and Doncaster-Sheffield.

Of particular interest to travellers based in the Sheffield area will be the three-times weekly flights from Robin Hood airport, the only direct service from the airport to the Lithuanian capital, and the sixth Wizzair destination from Doncaster-Sheffield.

The carrier will also offer five-times weekly flights to London Luton, replacing a Stansted service previously offered by Lithuanian low-cost carrier Star1 Airlines, which suspended operations on October 1.

Air Baltic had launched flights from London Gatwick to Vilnius earlier this year, but the carrier’s website no longer shows flights on the route.
