Wizz Air has now increased its investment to USD 160 million at the Lithuanian capital and will carry over 500,000 passengers in the current year, outgrowing any other airline in Vilnius, writes LETA/ELTA.
This growth comes as Wizz Air commences five new Vilnius routes and offers the biggest route choice compared to any other airline at Vilnius airport. Wizz Air's 13 low-fare routes, which include the 5 new routes to Bergen, Liverpool, Oslo, Paris and Stavanger, will grow incoming tourism and allow Lithuanian families to beat the recession with low fares to the sun and exciting European cities.
At the presentation of the new aircraft arrival, Wizz Air also announced its Wizz Ambassador program for Lithuania, which recognizes the excellent service provided by outstanding flight attendants. Over 10,000 passengers have voted so far to decide which flight attendants will be ambassadors for both Wizz Air's excellent passenger service and Lithuanian hospitality.
"This is a great day for Lithuanian aviation and tourism. Wizz Air has grown international routes to/from Vilnius from 8 to 13 in less than a year and we are now the preferred choice of passengers at Vilnius. Lithuanian travellers must be excited about Wizz Air's low fares, since we confirmed record bookings this summer to Bergen, Paris and Stavanger.
Lithuanian culture, gastronomy and hospitality are best shown by Lithuanian people, and we are pleased that over 10,000 passengers voted so far to decide who will be the Wizz Ambassadors on our Vilnius-based aircraft. To celebrate our second Vilnius aircraft and our number one position at the airport, Wizz Air has launched a sale with seats from LTL47 on wizzair.com, and we urge passengers to book before these low-fares seats are snapped up," said John Stephenson, Executive Vice President of Wizz Air.
