Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, has announced a new route between Belfast and Vilnius, Lithuania which will commence on 22 April 2015. The new service will initially operate two times a week.

Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, will be Wizz Air’s launch route from the capital of Northern Ireland. By adding Belfast to its growing route network, Wizz Air now operates over 300 routes across 36 countries and provides millions of passengers with reliable air traffic operations, very low fares and a friendly, consumer oriented service.

Uel Hoey, Business Development director at Belfast International Airport, said, “The addition of Vilnius to our growing portfolio of routes is a welcome development and brings Wizz back into the Northern Ireland marketplace. Vilnius opens up a completely new market for Northern Ireland and comes on the back of recent route announcements to Reykjavik, Prague and Zante.”
