Russia's airline Rusline plans to launch a service between Vilnius and St. Petersburg in late May, the company Lietuvos Oro Uostai (Lithuanian Airports), the operator of the country's three biggest airports, said on Wednesday.

"We see huge opportunities for travellers to reach the city, which is famous for its culture and white nights. All the more so because rail communication with this city will become unavailable shortly," Vilnius Airport CEO Artūras Stankevičius, said in a press release.

Flights on the route will be operated three times a week, he said.

Indrė Baltrušaitienė, spokeswoman for Lietuvos Oro Uostai, has told BNS that Rusline currently operates no flights to Lithuania, but it plans to resume its seasonal service between the Lithuanian seaside resort of Palanga and Moscow.

The airline operated flights from the Russian capital to Palanga and to Lithuania's second-biggest city of Kaunas during the 2013 summer season.

In June, Lietuvos Geležinkeliai (Lithuanian Railways) is closing down its train service to St. Petersburg, which last year saw a decline of more than one-third in passenger numbers. However, the state railway company will continue operating its service to Moscow, despite a 30-percent drop in passenger traffic.
