Ireland's Ryanair opens airplane base in Vilnius airport

BC, Vilnius, 02.11.2016.Print version
Ireland's low-cost airline Ryanair has opened a new airplane base in Vilnius, keeping two of its aircrafts here. It is Ryanair's second base in Lithuania, with two planes held in Kaunas, reports LETA/BNS.

Ryanair marketing director Matthias Wenk says expansion plans of the two bases have not yet been clarified.

"In principle, we are working with all airports for growth. We will have to see how everything develops in terms of Brexit. We are seeing the change in traffic in UK. We are very interested in developing in this region but it is hard to talk about plans for base growth here," Wenk told a Vilnius news conference on Wednesday.

The Vilnius base is Ryanair's 84 th base in Europe. The two airplanes in Vilnius have been purchased for 181.4 miln euros.

In Wenk's words, the company plans on carrying 1.4 mln passengers in Lithuania next year.
