PanARMENIAN.Net - Wizz Air announced Sunday, March 15 that all flights to and from Lithuania, including those bound for Yerevan, Armenia, will be cancelled starting from March 17.

Passengers will receive separate letters with all the necessary information about what needs to be done so that the money is returned to the bank account. In this case, customers will receive 100% of the amount.

If passengers bought tickets through travel agencies, including online travel agencies, they must contact the company from which they purchased the tickets.
