Brussels Airlines adds Vilnius to its network

Starting 29th March 2009, Brussels Airlines will offer 4 weekly connections between the capital of Europe and Vilnius. This year, the Lithuanian capital has been named the European Capital of Culture. Up until now, the lack of direct connection between the two cities meant that passengers had to include a transfer at a third airport.

Lithuania is one of the more dynamic of the Baltic countries, with an economic growth rate that has exceeded that of most European countries over the past several years. With the launch of this new route, Brussels Airlines is responding to a growing demand for a direct line between Belgium and Lithuania, which will now take only 3 hours instead of the 6 hours previously necessary to travel between the two capitals. 

A city with an important tourism potential, Vilnius was recently rated as one of Europe’s coolest capitals for 2009. Amongst the media, the city has become a destination not to be missed for the coming summer. 

Amongst its many charms, the baroque Old City – UNESCO World Heritage site – is definitely worth a visit. This year, Vilnius has been designated European Capital of Culture, with 600 events planned during the year. And the capital isn’t stopping there – there’s also a Guggenheim Heritage museum planned for the future, as well as many other projects. For more information, see culturelive.lt/en/main
