To avoid missing your flight remember these two rules

Summer is a holiday season and flying abroad is becoming even more popular. Traveller numbers soar during the summer months, so in order to make you flight safely you should remember these two rules. You should leave your home on time and choose the best way to get to the airport.


“The number of passengers flying through Vilnius Airport is constantly growing, which is especially true in summer. More and more Lithuanians spend their holidays abroad while Lithuania attracts a growing number of visitors each year. Therefore, in order to avoid stressful situations and traffic, it is worth noting the following.


First, you should arrive at the airport at least two hours before the flight. This is the optimum time to go through baggage registration, aviation safety, and passport checks. In addition, passengers can easily get to the airport by choosing alternative transportation options and without having to trouble their friends and family,” reminds Director of Vilnius Airport Justinas Stepšys.


Unlike many other airports of major European cities, Vilnius Airport is located close to the city centre making it very quick and easy to reach. Train ride to the airport from the capital’s Central Train Station only takes 7 minutes, while frequently running 3G buses can take you to the city centre in 20 minutes.

In addition, in 2017, a bus stop opened right next to the Arrival’s Terminal making bus journeys even more comfortable. Bus route No. 88 was specifically designed for the city’s guests. It takes passengers from the airport to the city centre and back every twenty minutes while stopping at all major hotels, as well as Vilnius Old Town.

Those who wish to go straight to Vilnius Bus Station can use the Airport Express bus services which run every twenty minutes. Other carriers operate convenient bus routes to Klaipėda, Minsk, Riga, and other destinations. Bus stop specifically designated for intercity buses is located only 30 metres outside the Arrivals Terminal.

“Another way to get to Vilnius Airport is to use a taxi or ride-sharing apps and services. P2 short-term parking lot located right next to the Arrivals Terminal allows passengers to use one of CityBee cars at any time,” adds Justinas Stepšys.

Although there are plenty of transportation options to reach Vilnius Airport, sometimes you just cannot travel without your own car. Like before, passenger drop off is located right next to the Departures Terminal, on the second floor, while three short-term car parks next to the Arrivals Terminal are for those who are coming to pick someone up. For swift pick up of friends and relatives, PC short-term car park which is located in the central zone is recommended. From 1 June, it will allow 15 minutes of free parking every three hours.

“This car park is very popular among visitors who come to pick up or drop off their friends and family, as well as private drivers offering transfer services. Due to its increasing popularity we plan to expand the car park this summer and equip it with new parking spaces,” says Director of Vilnius Airport Justinas Stepšys.
