LOT Polish Airlines launched a new flight from London City Airport to Vilnius on May 1.
The new flight now means that it has never been easier for business travelers to reach the Lithuanian capital. LOT will offer up to 12 flights a week on the new service.
It is the first route to offer business class on a direct flight to the city, as well as the first to link Vilnius with London’s business centre airport so close to the heart of the city.
The new route further enhances the destination’s appeal as a MICE and business travel destination.
The city drew attention last year for their much discussed tourism campaign referring to Vilnius as ‘the G-spot of Europe’. Robert Sinclair, CEO, London City Airport commented, “We are excited to make Vilnius even more accessible from London. European capital cities have a lot in common but we can celebrate our uniqueness, inspiring travellers to explore new places and return time and time again.” He went on to explain the G-spot of Europe campaign is similar to the philosophy of London City Airport, daring to be different, standing out and brave.
Vilnius Mayor Remigijus Simasius welcomed the new route, commenting, “Vilnius is delighted to have another direct link to a likeminded capital and we look forward to welcome more UK guests to the city, hoping they discover all that we have in common, together with Vilnius’ unique identity. London City Airport is easily accessible, much like Vilnius airport, and our cities both share a walkable, friendly ambience where history, culture, food and language combine to create a destination of distinction. London and Vilnius are closer than ever.”
