Vilnius Airport Mini Guide
What are your views on Vilnius?
It’s an interesting place for a city break with loads of history and culture. There are many unusual sights to see there including the Baroque interior of St Peter’s and St Paul’s church or the memorial to the victims of the KGB in their former prison. Vilnius Cathedral is another fascinating day’s visit with a huge bell tower and creepy crypts plus a display on Vilnius through the centuries. Finally, consider taking a hot air balloon trip over the city and look down on the quaint old quarter, the home of the Jewish community before World War II.
How do I get to Vilnius?
There are dozens of airlines that fly chartered or scheduled flights into Vilnius including low cost airlines Ryanair from Birmingham
and Wizzair. The airport is less than four miles from the city centre and well served with local and shuttle buses that make the journey in around fifteen minutes. You can hire a car at the airport to get around under your own steam or take a taxi into the centre.
What is Vilnius Airport like?
Well it was renovated a couple of years ago to take away its stark cold war appearance but you may disagree that the renovation has made much difference to the bleak and blocky exterior. Inside is a different story with bright lighting and plenty of stainless steel.
When I arrive what should I do?
Once you get in from the cold, head for the information desk if you need help on finding anything in the airport or if you need advice on accommodation or onward travel. At the desk they can arrange a taxi and give you bus timetables and fares information. If you need medical help after your flight the airport has a medical room on the second floor. Car hire desks are easily spotted in the arrivals area and the journey into the city is quick and easy to navigate.
And when I’m going home?
The airport really comes into its own now. If you need assistance for reduced mobility or sensory impairment contact the airport two days before you fly and they will be able to assist. After check in there are plenty of shops to amuse those with spare holiday spending money. As well as the duty free shop selling gifts, perfumes, alcohol, wine and cigarettes there is also a bookshop selling latest novels and magazines, a florist, kiosks selling a limited range of food and drink and a fresh juice machine.
If you get hungry, there is a wide range of eateries to choose from including pizza, café snack food, more filling main meals with a Lithuanian twist plus various bars and pubs. Wi-Fi access is free and there are business and VIP lounges for those who need a little more comfort. If you’re going to be travelling through Vilnius on a regular basis you might want to buy a Privilege card which gives you 15% off the cost of airport services.
