Irish low-cost airline Ryanair will launch flights to the German cities of Cologne and Nuremberg from Lithuania's Kaunas in July.

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

German Hella manufacturing began operating in Kaunas Free Economic Zone last year, and Continental production plant is due to open in fall. This led to the decision to launch new flights, according to the head of Kaunas Airport Karolis Matulaitis. 

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.
