Location information for Palanga International Airport

Palanga International Airport is among the main gateways to Lithuania’s most popular Baltic Sea beach resort, which sits under five miles away with car hire in Palanga - Airport. Lithuania’s third-busiest airport welcomed over 102,000 passengers in 2010, most of which arrived during Palanga’s busy summer season. Short walkways connect the airport’s two neighboring terminals.


Palanga Airport facilities

Specialized shuttles transport passengers between aircraft and the airport without jet bridges. The North Terminal, the newer of the two terminals, handles flights to and from nations outside the Schengen zone. The South Terminal contains a café, a bar and a check-in area. Sixt, Avis, Europcar and Hertz all give passengers the chance to compare car hire at the airport, which offers direct flights throughout Scandinavia and Eastern Europe.


Palanga Airport excursions

Palanga’s 11 miles of sandy beaches are famous for their towering dunes and can reach up to 984 feet wide. Guests seeking reprieve from Palanga’s summer crowds can take their car rental in Palanga - Airport to the Neringa and Zemaitija national parks, the latter of which preserves Lithuania rural traditions. Klaipeda Aquarium is housed within an impressive 19th century fort in Smiltyne, a short ferry ride from Klaipeda Old Town.


Best time to visit

Summer is by far Palanga’s busiest season, but its weather remains pleasant well into the less crowded autumn month of September. Palanga’s beaches are covered in snow during most of the long winter months, but the white stuff completely disappears by May. May and June are two of the more pleasant months to visit Palanga as locals have not yet descended upon the resort for the summer.


Car rental in Palanga Airport

Both the E85 motorway between Vilnius and Klaip?da and the A13 route between Klaip?da and Palanga are constantly clogged with traffic during Palanga’s busy summer season. Driving these routes is a much more pleasant experience during the less crowded autumn and spring months, but roads can get icy and snow covered in winter.
