Danuta Pavilenene, BC, Vilnius, 21.05.2010.Print version
As of May 23, the Lithuanian low cost carrier Star1 Airlines launches direct flights from Vilnius to Spain's Girona airport which is located 90 kilometres from Barcelona. The airline will operate the flights to Girona, which were very popular last summer, twice a week, on Thursdays and Sundays.

Star1 Airlines belongs to the group of companies Star Team Group which also owns a tour operator Star1 Holidays. In its summer flight schedule Star1 Airlines offers flights to London, Dublin, Milan, Edinburgh, Girona, (Barcelona), Heralion, Ibiza and Palermo.

 

Star1 Airlines CEO Martynas Laivys said that last summer the airline carried 5,700 passengers on the route Vilnius-Girona-Vilnius, which proved to be one of the most popular routes in the season, informs LETA/ELTA.

 

 "In summer season Barcelona becomes one of the largest attraction points for tourists from Europe and all over the world. No wonder we feel high interest from travellers in this destination. This year the timing of flights to Girona is extremely favourable for longer weekend trips – after departing from Vilnius on Thursday morning tourists shall have 3.5 days for their stay at the Catalonian capital and be back to Vilnius Sunday afternoon," Laivys said. The flights are expected to be chosen by around 7,000 travellers during this summer season. The flight to Girona will take 3 hours and 15 minutes.
