TALLINN – German intercity bus operator Flixbus is about to resume operations in the Baltic countries, with departures from Tallinn to start on June 10.
In the first stage, Flixbus will open five bus routes in five countries. In addition to the Baltic states, passengers will also be able to travel to Poland and Germany. The first route, Vilnius-Warsaw-Berlin, will start as early as this Wednesday, Kamila Zalewska, head of business development for Poland and the Baltic countries at Flixbus, said at Wednesday's press conference.
Starting from June 10, Flixbus will also open the Vilnius-Warsaw, Tallinn-Riga-Warsaw and two Tallinn-Vilnius routes, one of which will be daytime operation and the other an overnight operation.
The first five routes will be operated by eight buses, run by Flixbus' partner companies Ollex from Lithuania and Zak and Inter from Poland.
Zalewska said that the company also plans to open Riga-Vilnius-Warsaw, Vilnius-Krakow-Katowice, Riga-Warsaw-Vienna and Riga-Warsaw routes at the end of June.
Plans are for the network of routes to be expanded further in the future, including through adding departures that would also pass through Estonia -- for example, Tartu and Narva.
