The Irish company will fly to Cologne Bonn Airport on Wednesdays and Saturday, and passengers will be flown to Nuremberg on Tuesdays and Saturdays during summer and winter seasons, Lietuvos Oro Uostai (Lithuanian Airports), the airport operator in Lithuania, has announced.

According to Karolis Matulaitis, head of Kainas Airport, the decision to launch the new flights was determined by the fact that German giant Hella launched operations in the Kaunas Free Economic Zone last year, and a Continental production plant is due to be launched in the fall.

Up until now, only cargo has been flown from Cologne to Kaunas, commissioned by logistics company UPS.

Lufthansa, airBaltic, Ryanair and Wizz Air now fly from Vilnius to six German cities, and Wizz Air flies from Palanga to Dortmund.
