Six new direct routes to open from Vilnius

As of September 3, airBaltic will launch new direct flights from Vilnius to six European capitals. In addition to the existing routes to Amsterdam and Riga, the airline will operate up to two daily flights to Stockholm, daily flights to Helsinki and Warsaw, four flights per week to Berlin and Brussels and three flights per week to Paris.

Berlin. While you can still view Berlin’s older history in the surviving medieval buildings at Alexander Platz, there are many diverse architectural styles to keep your eyes aglow. Pass by the Mauermuseum at Checkpoint Charlie, the infamous meeting point for spies and would-be traitors, where one can still see a sign stating that “You are leaving the American sector”.

Brussels. For foodies, Brussels is the place for delicious chocolate, sugar-dusted gauffres (waffles) and a staggering selection of beer. Head to the Grand Place for the best waffles sold hot on the street, or settle down at one of the many brasseries, bars and salons de thé (similar to cafés) for a glass of lambic-style beer, which is made from yeast grown strictly in the Senne Valley.

Paris. Paris offers charming city breaks to suit every possible taste. See the Eiffel Tower at night with its lights ablaze and the city glinting below, the Notre Dame Cathedral and the endless beauty enclosed within the Louvre museum. You might also want to explore a Roman bathhouse in the Quartier Latin or take part in the revelry of a street performance outside the Centre Pompidou.

Warsaw. Leave all assumptions behind when visiting this renewed city. Begin in the beautifully restored Old Town at Castle Square and King Sigismund’s Column. Then stroll down the so-called Royal Route past various palaces and stop at the leafy Royal Baths Park, which is Warsaw’s biggest park and dates to the 17th century. It is also home to the Chopin Monument, where visitors can enjoy outdoor piano concerts during the summer months in honour of the city’s native composer.

Helsinki. Leave your hotel behind and explore the city on foot with a self-led walking tour of the city. See the mix of architectural styles, with plenty of Art Nouveau and Neoclassical structures to enjoy, especially in Senate Square. At Market Square, join the bustle and the fun, where nearly anything Finnish can be bought, including reindeer products such as jewellery made from antlers and hunting knives, as well as plenty of seafood.

Stockholm. Stockholm offers an impressive number of sights. Head off to the Old Town at Gamla Stan, the beating heart of Stockholm. Here, narrow and twisting streets whisk one back to the Middle Ages, complete with the Riddarholmskyrkan, a classic medieval church. To the east of Gamla Stan stands the Royal Palace, which is open to the public and includes access to the Royal Apartments, the Tre Kronor Museum and the Treasury.


As of now, the new flights are available for booking at airBaltic.com. One-way ticket prices to these destinations start from EUR 59.
