Wizz Air is to grow its Lithuanian route network with twice weekly flights between the country’s “summer capital”, Palanga, and London Luton beginning on 23 March 2016.
With an initial seat capacity of 37,000 seats, the new Palanga route is expected to benefit the Lithuanian coastal region’s employment base by attracting tourism to the Baltic Sea. The airport in western Lithuania is also close to the country’s third largest city, Klaipeda.
Wizz Air’s Daniel de Carvalho commented, "Wizz Air continues the expansion of its low-fare route offer in Lithuania and we are thrilled to announce our first Palanga route. This is an opportunity for the local tourism sector to attract UK visitors on Wizz’s low airfares to its famous Lithuanian seaside resort on the Baltic shore.”
