Join UP!, Ukraine’s leading tour operator, launches direct flights from Vilnius to Sri Lanka on Thursday.
Ukraine’s SkyUp Airlines will fly tourists to Mattala Airport, while Join UP! will offer charter flights, the company said in a press release.
“This winter, we are seeing an increased demand for exotic destinations in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, especially during the Christmas holidays when most of the trips to other countries are already sold out. In response to this demand, we have started to offer trips to Sri Lanka from Vilnius,” the press release quoted Sabina Saikovskaja, Join UP! Baltic executive director, as saying.
A flight from Vilnius to Sri Lanka will take around 12 hours, with a one-hour stopover in Bahrain for refueling.
