BNS 2020.05.25 09:49

Latvian airline AirBaltic is resuming Vilnius–Tallinn flights on Monday. The first plane is scheduled to land in Vilnius at 19:00 and depart to Tallinn at 21:10.

On May 20, the Lithuanian government also allowed AirBaltic to resume flights to Norway, while Germany's Lufthansa has recently resumed its Vilnius–Frankfurt flights and AirBaltic has also relaunched flights to Riga.

Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius previously 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.

However, as of Monday morning, no flights to or from Oslo are scheduled at Vilnius Airport.

Lithuania has opened its borders only to Estonian and Latvian citizens and residents – except for several exceptions– as well as to the residents and citizens of Poland coming to Lithuania for business, work or education.

Lithuania's residents and nationals can return to the country, but are required to spend two weeks in self-isolation.
