Airlines


Airline connections with Lithuania are excellent. Lithuania has three international airports, i.e. Vilnius Airport (www.vilnius-airport.lt), Kaunas Airport (www.kaunas-airport.lt), and Palanga Airport (www.palanga-airport.lt). Scheduled flights operated by 11 different airlines connect Vilnius with all major Western and Eastern European hubs; 3 airlines service Kaunas Airport, and 5 airlines service Palanga Airport (holiday resort in close proximity to the Klaipėda seaport). Lithuania has 27 airports and aerodromes in total; the majority of them welcome private planes.

Water transport, ferries


Seagoing ferries connect Klaipėda seaport with 6 Baltic Sea ports in Sweden, Denmark, Germany and Poland (www.scandlines.lt). Inland ferries connect Klaipėda with Smiltynė on the Curonian Spit (www.keltas.lt). Klaipėda has two yacht-clubs; one of them is conveniently located in the very centre of the city, next to the terminal for cruise ships (www.ports.lt; www.lbs.lt).
