Lietuvos Oro Uostai (Lithuanian Airports, or LOU), the operator of the country's three international airports, has offered eight new flight destinations and additional flights on some routes for the winter season launched last weekend.

Aurimas Stikliūnas, head of aviation services at LOU, expects passenger traffic to continue its upward trend in the winter season after a very successful summer season that saw 4 million passengers go through the three airports.

"This year's winter season is exceptional in that we offer both new destinations and new countries. For example, there will be a direct link between Vilnius Airport and Jordan's capital of Amman. Also, there will be a new service from Vilnius to Lvov," he said in a press release.

Wizz Air will fly passengers to Lvov, in Ukraine, and Ryanair will offer flights from Vilnius to Kiev and Tel Aviv. Both airlines will also operate flights to Amman and Treviso, in Italy.

Air Baltic will operate larger aircraft to Amsterdam, Munich, Berlin and Paris, and Norwegian Air will add more flights to Stockholm.

LOU offers flights to a total of 66 destinations during the winter season, including 55 from Vilnius, 19 from Kaunas and five from Palanga.

The three airports handled 5.2 million passengers and 55,000 flights last year.
