Lithuanian Transport Safety Administration (LTSA) informs Lithuanian citizens who are inquiring about the flights from other countries and waiting for the opportunity to return to Lithuania.

Currently, there are two procedures for issuing flight permits. One procedure is used for scheduled flights and a different procedure is used for non-scheduled flights.

LTSA is responsible for issuing permits for non-scheduled flights

Non-scheduled flights carrying more than 10 passengers to international airports of the Republic of Lithuania shall fall subject to an individual permission to operate issued by the Lithuanian Transport Safety Administration.

However, when taking decision for issuing permits for non-scheduled flights to or from specific country, LTSA must consider assessment of the epidemiological situation submitted by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Lithuania. In case the assessment of the epidemiological situation in specific country is negative, LTSA is unable to issue a permit for non-scheduled flight to / from that country.

Government of the Republic of Lithuania makes decisions regarding scheduled flights

Regular passenger flights to international airports of the Republic of Lithuania shall only be allowed on the routes that have been approved to resume by the Government at the recommendation of the Minister for Foreign Affairs.

At the current time Government of the Republic of Lithuania has approved the renewal of following scheduled flight routes:

    between Vilnius and Frankfurt – from May 10, 2020
    between Vilnius and Riga – from May 18, 2020
    between Vilnius and Tallinn – from May 25, 2020

   between between Lithuania and Norway as from 25th May 2020.

LTSA encourages passengers responsibly evaluate all the information and not be tempted by ticket sales in advance before the official confirmation of flights operations. We also recommend to follow Vilnius Airport website information on available flights.
