Kauras International Airport is the fourth busiest airport in the Baltic States. The airport is just 14km from Kauras city centre. Renovation in 2001 and a terminal extension in 2008 have left a smart airport with quality facilities and a good choice of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. The airport is a gateway to a cosmopolitan city and some of the Lithuania’s most scenic holiday regions.
Kaunas is particularly well served by Ryanair. The low-cost airline opened a Baltic base at the airport in 2010. They now account for a large part of the airport’s passenger traffic. Ryanair presently operate routes from Bristol, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Luton, Gatwick and Stansted. Some of these routes may be seasonal. More expensive indirect flights are available from Heathrow and London City Airport. Airlines with indirect flights include Austrian Airlines and Air France.
