The list of the top five users of Lithuanian airspace remained unchanged last month compared with a year ago, but Aeroflot rose to the number one spot, leaving last year's leader Finnair and Latvia's airBaltic behind. 

Aeroflot operated 1,844 flights in Lithuanian airspace in November, followed by airBaltic with 1,813, Finnair with 1,479, Germany's Lufthansa with 1,358, and Ireland's Ryanair with 1,113 flights. 

A total of 19,200 flights were handled in Lithuanian airspace last month, up by 3.5% y-o-y. Three-quarters of the flights (14,300) were on transit routes. 

Most of flights from Lithuania were to the United Kingdom and the largest number of transit flights were to Russia.
