Lithuanian Airports launches search for London City flight carrier
Lietuvos Oro Uostai (Lithuanian Airports), Lithuania's state-run operator of the country's three airports, has launched a search for an airline to operate business flights from Vilnius to London City Airport.
"We are directly communicating and making ties with air carriers. In cooperation with potential partners, we are actively looking for cooperation opportunities and have been asked to launch a public tender for a carrier to operate flights on the Vilnius-London City Airport route," Lietuvos Oro Uostai CEO Marius Gelžinis was quoted as saying in a statement.
Applications are accepted until Oct. 12 and the flights are expected to be launched next spring. The selected air carrier will be expected to operate regular flight throughout the whole year and tickets should be sold at market prices.
Lietuvos Oro Uostai has been trying to attract a carrier to operate flights to one of London's main airports for several years now, unsuccessfully talking to , and airBaltic.
