In 2022 the Ministry of Transport and Communications of the Republic of Lithuania, together with external consultants, prepared a plan to promote flights to destinations which have strategic importance for Lithuania. Now, Lithuanian Airports are introducing a new incentive model and launching an international call for application from airlines to participate in the selection process for the operator of scheduled flights between Vilnius (VNO) and London City (LCY) airports.
Airlines can submit their proposals from today until 9 June 2023, 15:00 (Lithuanian time). All submitted proposals will be evaluated according to the criteria which are set out in terms of call. Given that this route is of particular importance to business passengers, the selection criteria also aim to ensure that flights are operated at times and frequencies convenient for this segment of passengers.
It is expected that the contract with the airline which will submit the best offer, after all necessary qualification checks and the preparation of a joint business plan, could be signed by September and flights could start in the mid-autumn.
