Tadas Vasiliauskas, spokesman for Lietuvos Oro Uostai (Lithuanian Airports), the operator of Lithuania's three international airports, said Ryanair was cutting its flight schedule in all European countries.

"It's currently known that the airline will simply not operate any flights from Vilnius Airport until the end of March due to the challenges caused by the pandemic and the existing travel restrictions, but this doesn't mean the closure of the base," he told BNS.

The spokesman said he had no confirmed information indicating that the company was planning to close its base at Vilnius Airport.

The Dublin-based carrier announced on January 7 that it was making big cuts to its flight schedule in response to COVID-19 restrictions.

"Ryanair will significantly cut its flight schedules from Thursday, 21 January, which will result in few, if any, flights being operated to/from Ireland or the UK from the end of Jan until such time as these draconian travel restrictions are removed:" it said in a statement.
