The Government has approved the Foreign Ministry’s proposal to resume scheduled flights to Norway as of 25 May. Flights will be operated to Oslo, Ålesund, Bergen, and Torp Sandefjord. Requests for the resumption of such flights have been made by airBaltic and Wizz Air.
Air connection with Frankfurt (Germany) has been resumed since 13 May. Vilnius – Riga regular daily flights (in both directions) have been relaunched since 18 May, while Vilnius – Tallinn flights will resume as of 25 May.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has received requests to resume scheduled flights in other directions as well. When submitting proposals to the Government on the possibilities of resuming flights in other directions, the Ministry cooperates with the responsible Lithuanian authorities and assesses such possibilities in consideration of the epidemiological situation and the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO). No other routes are currently authorised.
We recommend that those intending to travel carefully consider the risks of purchasing tickets for those flights that have not been authorised yet. We also recommend to find out in advance what requirements and restrictions apply in the countries of the intended visit. Information can be found at http://keliauk.urm.lt/en/.

Travel recommendations have so far been changed only with respect to Latvia and Estonia, with which it has been agreed to lift certain travel restrictions applied during the pandemic.
