Lithuanian low-cost airline Wizz Air on Wednesday announced a new route from Vilnius to Larnaca International airport starting from June 22.
According to an announcement, the new service will be operated on one of the airline's new Airbus A320 aircraft and will be a direct connection from Lithuania to Cyprus twice weekly, on Wednesdays and Sundays.
Wizz Air's route network in Vilnius will now grow to a total of 17 routes to 12 different countries.
"The airline believes this is good news for the job market in aviation and tourism sectors in both cities as consumers will have access to more low cost routes," the airline said.
Wizz Air's Daniel de Carvalho said: "Wizz Air's commitment to Lithuania is today once again underlined by a new and much awaited summer sun route to Cyprus. Larnaca is now accessible on our low fares from Vilnius and we hope that this route will be just as popular as the other 16 in the Lithuanian network.
He added: "We hope that Vilnius will benefit from the inflow of tourists from Cyprus which could stimulate job creation in tourism and hospitality sectors. On the other hand we are also confident that Lithuanian consumers will appreciate visiting the beautiful seaside resorts of Larnaca all year round and that it becomes popular to book long weekends in this friendly and warm destination."
