The company's EBITDA margin is forecast to increase by 45-56 percent in 2019-2022, from 40 percent last year, according to Lietuvos Oro Uostai's 2018 report.

"Vilnius Airport's existing infrastructure is not adapted to the existing passenger flows and does not meet the minimal passenger experience rates which are critical if Lithuania wants to expand its accessibility map by attracting new airlines, launching new routes as well as maintaining its passenger growth potential," the document reads.

Started last year, the reconstruction of Vilnius Airport is set to continue until 2022. It will include the expansion of the passenger terminal northwards, the expansion of the northern apron and also the construction of a new VIP terminal.

Following the airport's modernization, it will be capable of servicing 2,400 passengers per hour during peak times and 7.5 million passengers per year, compared to 4.9 million passengers serviced in Vilnius last year.

Moreover, the construction of a multi-storey car park is scheduled to be finished at Vilnius Airport by the end of this year, and it will house a car rental center, charging stations for electric cars and will provide other services.

Lietuvos Oro Uostai posted almost 44 million euros in revenue last year, up 32.9 percent, with the majority of it coming from its main activity accounting for 29.4 million euros, up 34.2 percent year-on-year. Its net profits more then trebled to 8.4 million euros last year.
