On Wednesday (May 29, 2024), airBaltic announced the launch of new service between Palanga and Amsterdam, expanding their network from Lithuania to 19 destinations, with two based aircraft in Vilnius.  The route will be operated twice weekly with an Airbus A220-300 featuring Business and Economy Class cabins.  This past April, airBaltic celebrated 15 years of service to/from Palanga, and over the years has connected Lithuania’s seaside with the Latvian capital with daily service.  Customers can also enjoy seamless connections to airBaltic’s home base in Riga, Latvia, where they can connect to the carrier’s extensive worldwide network with over 20 codeshare partners.

In Wednesday’s announcement, airBaltic’s Vice President of Network Development, Mantas Vrubliauskas, said,

“We are thrilled to expand our services in Palanga with the new direct route to Amsterdam, which is one the largest airport hubs in Europe and one of the most demanded destinations from Palanga airport.  This addition greatly enhances the connectivity of Western Lithuania, with more than 100 destinations connected via Amsterdam.  This route will also be important in attracting new visitors to the beautiful Western Lithuanian region.  This new route is also a testament to our excellent cooperation with Lithuanian airports and Klaipeda region.”

Also commenting on airBaltic’s new Amsterdam Service, Lithuanian Airport’s Head of Route Development, Tomas Zitikis, added,

“This route is very important for the entire Western Lithuania region.  It will benefit both those passengers who will be able to reach Amsterdam directly and quickly as their final destination, and those who will be able to use convenient connecting flights through this aviation hub to reach, for example, the United States.  Without doubt, this convenient flight is also an opportunity for our country to attract more tourists from Western Europe.  We are very pleased and delighted with the decision of our long-standing partner airBaltic to expand at the Lithuanian seaside airport.”
