Skvernelis did not say which routes might be reopened initially, but noted that air travel to countries that do not apply quarantine restrictions or are coronavirus hotspots will not be resumed.

"The government will consider how to renew flights at Vilnius Airport, but certainly not today," the prime minister said, adding that "some first steps" toward resuming air travel could be made "around May 10-15".

"Of course, there won't be many routes and there won't be routes from those countries that do not have a quarantine regime or have massive outbreaks," he said.
