The company said the flights would be launched on March 27, taking place three times a week.

Ireland's Ryanair last week also announced plans to launch two weekly flights from Vilnius to Athens next summer. A report came in September that a Greek airline, Aegean Airlines, would also fly between the two capitals in the summer of 2018.

Wizz Air currently flies from all three Lithuanian airports of Vilnius, Kaunas and Palanga to 15 countries. It will open routes to Agadir, Morocco, in November and to the Polish port of Gdansk in December.
