FlyLAL has announced plans to open a route between London Stansted Airport and the Amber Coast resort of Palanga next month.

The Lithuanian national carrier's new service will operate on Thursdays and Saturdays from May 17th.

Indre Trakimaite of the Lithuanian National Tourist Office said the flights would give Britons the chance to discover a new holiday destination.

"Direct flights from London to Palanga offer a splendid opportunity to visit the beautiful Curonian Spit, the seaport of Klaipeda and the popular summer resort Palanga and its Amber Museum," claimed Ms Trakimaite.

FlyLAL has also confirmed that from May 16th it will operate four flights a week from London Stansted Airport to Vilnius. The route is in addition to the one it runs between London Gatwick Airport and the Lithuanian capital.

A number of other new services from Stansted are set to commence in May, including Eos flights to Dubai and Newark, New Jersey.
