Lithuanian ambassador to Greece Rolandas Kačinskas on Tuesday termed the inauguration of the direct flight service between Athens and Vilnius as a significant moment.
He further said the initiative would be very beneficial from the tourism perspective as well as development of relations between Greece and Lithuania in general.
