The Lithuanian government has greenlit relaunching regular flights to Norway, making Oslo the fourth destination to be accessible by air from Vilnius. Regular flights have so far been allowed to Frankfurt, Riga and Tallinn.

Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius told the Cabinet that flights from Vilnius to Oslo would resume from May 25, adding that AirBaltic and Wizz Air had asked for permission to operate the service.

“Flights would be operated from Vilnius to Oslo, and Wizz Air would also operate flights from Alesund and Bergen to Kaunas,” he said.

Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis told reporters on Tuesday that the Polish airline LOT was interested in relaunching flights from Lithuania to Warsaw.

Germany's Lufthansa currently flies passengers from Vilnius to Frankfurt. Latvia's AirBaltic has relaunched flights from Vilnius to Riga and is expected to resume flying from the Lithuanian capital to Tallinn next week.

Last Friday, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia opened their borders to each other's residents, allowing free travel across the Baltic states. Residents and citizens of Poland are also allowed to come to Lithuania for business, work or education.
