“It is important to note that both scheduled and charter flight segments grew at the same rate during the record month of July. It was driven by the expansion of the geography of flights while the growth in the charter flight segment was also supported by the flows of transit passengers traveling through Vilnius,” Tomas Vaišvila, the airport’s CEO, said in a press release.
The airport handled 1.206 million passengers between January and July, up 34 percent year-on-year.
Passenger traffic on routes to Moscow and Tallinn doubled in July.
The number of passengers traveling to Oslo soared by 76 percent, to Kiev and London, by 48 percent, to Warsaw, by 45 percent, and to Frankfurt, by 26 percent.
The airport plans to handle more than 2 million passengers this year.
