airBaltic Changes Schedule in Vilnius, Lithuania, Due to Crowding Airlines

For the summer season starting March 27, Latvian airline airBaltic is cancelling four routes from Vilnius to Dublin, London, Rome and Paris, as the new market entrants in Lithuania have created identical products, resulting in overlapping of routes, and overcapacity.

Tadas Vizgirda, General Manager of airBaltic in Lithuania: “Coincidentally, both Ryanair and Wizzair have announced new routes in Vilnius that overlap with those served by airBaltic. The world is big enough, and we rather walk away from the crowd, to avoid the other two airlines flying wing-to-wing with each other.

The new Vilnius airport discount scheme appears to have backfired, resulting in overcapacity on just a handful of routes rather than broadening the choice of routes, as intended by the scheme.”

airBaltic apologizes for inconvenience to passengers. Customer satisfaction is the priority of airBaltic. Each and every customer who has booked tickets on the cancelled flights will be offered alternatives by airBaltic individually.
