Kaunas Airport served a record 114,000 passengers in July, according to a press release.

“In July, we served 114,284 passengers [...] handled 934 flights, and carried 276 tons of cargo," said Kaunas AIrport director, Karolis Matulaitis.

“In July, two new destinations were offered to travellers - the cities of Cologne and Nurnberg [that] will be conducted also during the winter season."

The record-breaking result of July is partially due to the international military training actively conducted at that time to which their participants arrived through Kaunas Airport.

The record numbers are in part due to international military exercises taking place during the summer, which meant the personnel arrived through Kaunas Airport, according to the press release.

During 2014 - 2018, flights have increased by 112 percent, and passangers by 41 percent.

Kaunas Airport is due to expand by 2022 to serve an estimated 2 million passangers.
