More and more foreign passengers choose Vilnius not only as a great
holiday destination but also as a first trip stop. Vilnius is
increasingly popular among Lithuanian neighbours. Having noticed growing
numbers of Latvian passengers a special shuttle was launched connecting
the main Lithuanian air gateway and Daugavpils.
A Dauntrans-operated route between the second largest Latvian city
and Vilnius Airport has two new and comfortable 20-seat minibuses. The
route includes stops at Zarasai, Visaginas, Dūkštas, Ignalina and
Vilnius Bus Station. The entire journey lasts 3.5 hours.
"This route has expanded the geography of connections with Vilnius
Airport. Up till now, Vilnius Airport was directly and conveniently
connected with Palanga, Klaipėda and Kaunas. We are also looking for new
routes. We hope soon to have a bus operating between Vilnius Airport
and Belarus capital Minks," says Indrė Baltrušaitienė, Head of
Communications and Marketing at Lithuanian Airports.
A minibus from Daugavpils to Vilnius Airport leaves daily at 7am, and to Latvia at 1pm.
A ticket costs EUR 15.
Vilnius Airport offers Latvian passengers not only 47 routes operated
by 17 airlines but also a unique space – FilmBox LT, the only airport
movie theatre in Baltic and Nordic countries, where they can wait for
