Vilnius airport. How to get there, direct connections, bus and train

Vilnius Airport

Vilnius Airport is the most important airport in Lithuania serving the capital, from which it is 6 kilometers away. It is an important hub of the Baltic countries, together with the airports of Riga and Tallin and, above all, it is one of the fastest growing airports in recent years.

With the influx of travelers steadily increasing (except for the period of the Pandemic), the runway and terminal have been expanded. The new area now covers approximately 3500 square meters and hosts new shops, bars, restaurants and duty-free shops.

The WIFI line is available free of charge throughout the entire hotel. Just connect your device to the “Free Wifi Vilnius Airport” network and follow the instructions on the screen.
