Airline Air Lituanica carried
over 132,000 passengers in 2014, and over 182,000 passengers since it
started operating. In 2015, it plans to carry over 200,000 passengers
and expand the geography of its flights.
Air Lituanica sold more than
140,000 tickets to flights operated in 2014. The average price for a
one-way ticket is EUR 84 (LTL 290.04), excluding airport fees. The
largest number of passengers was transported to Tallinn – 27,000,
followed by Paris with 22,500, and Berlin and Munich with 20,000
passengers each. Last year, Air Lituanica carried 11,500 transit
passengers travelling to/from Tallinn via Vilnius Airport.
“The success of the
route to Tallinn is a perfect example that our strategy to focus on
business passengers is working. We continue working in the same
direction. In January, we will launch flights from Vilnius to Stockholm
Bromma airport – convenient morning and evening flights to the central
airport of the Swedish capital city are firstly intended for frequent
business passengers,”says Simonas Bartkus, Chief Commercial Officer of Air Lituanica.
He adds that Air Lituanica’s
route to Germany – Berlin and Munich – gained its momentum in 2014, in
particular promoting incoming tourism. More flights to German
destinations will be offered, thus continuing growth in these directions
Among traditional airlines
operating flights to/from Vilnius Airport, Air Lituanica has a 11–12%
market share. In 2014, the traffic at the Vilnius International Airport
increased by 10%.
