Ryanair will conduct repatriation flights from London and Berlin to Vilnius, which will also be made available to Latvian nationals, Foreign Ministry press secretary Janis Bekeris posted on Twitter cited LETA.

He said that these repatriation flights will be conducted today. Once arriving in Vilnius, passengers travelling to Latvia will them have to ride in an organized transit convoy to the Latvian border.

As reported, Lithuania's government has decided to allow foreigners to cross the country in transit until Thursday.

"People returning to their country of residence are allowed to cross the Lithuanian territory in transit until 00 hours on March 26 without necessary stops in groups of people or vehicles by ensuring mandatory escort of these groups from the arrival in Lithuania to their departure via international border crossing points," Interior Minister Rita Tamasuniene said.

Lithuania closed its borders to foreigners after the country was placed under quarantine last Monday to slow the spread of the new coronavirus. But the country gave foreigners time to return to their countries via Lithuania.

The deadline was in place for three days and was extended to the end of last week, but has now been extended until March 26.
