The Blitz programme aims at opening up new possibilities for Vilnius, Kaunas, and Palanga airports because an increased accessibility of the country and its economic effect will be felt all over Lithuania.
Generating changes through joint efforts. This is what the new initiative introduced by Lithuanian Airports targets at. Blitz sessions is the name given to the project for attracting new airlines and routes when joint efforts of government institutions, municipality organisations, entrepreneurs associations and separate enterprises are directed towards attracting the most necessary routes for business, cities or regions, as well as ensuring appropriate frequencies of flights.
“This initiative will enable us to consolidate efforts and reach agreements that will open new opportunities for Lithuanian business and will bring benefit to the state. We have high expectations on these win-win collaborations because we clearly see their high efficiency,” states Marius Gelžinis, CEO of Lithuanian Airports.
The CEO of Lithuanian Airports also emphasised the benefit of the new initiative to all the airports in the country. The Blitz programme aims at opening up new possibilities for Vilnius, Kaunas, and Palanga airports because an increased accessibility of the country and its economic effect will be felt all over Lithuania.
“It is worth mentioning that competition seeking to attract new airlines or open a new route is highly tough. Both financial contribution and other support measures from government institutions, municipality organisations, entrepreneurs associations and separate enterprises gain utmost importance when Lithuanian Airports seek to successfully compete with airports all over Europe, i.e., with significantly bigger markets in terms of population, economic development and standard of living,” states Aurimas Stikliūnas Head of Aviation Services Division of Lithuanian Airports.
According to him, the air carrier itself makes the decision about entering a market, opening a new route or closing the existing one. Therefore, it is beyond the doubts that the new initiative Blitz will definitely contribute to the successful outcome of competing with other airports because joint efforts of different stakeholders seeking to attain a common goal will significantly increase possibilities for attracting new flight routes.
