Most tourists arrive by air; Vilnius airport is served by sixteen European airlines, including budget airlines Wizz Air (wwww.wizzair.com), Norwegian Air Shuttle (wwww.norwegian.com) and Ryanair (wwww.ryanair.com); the latter also flies to Kaunas. Lithuania has poor rail connections with its neighbours; international buses from neighbouring countries to Vilnius and Kaunas are far more numerous, with plenty of services from Latvia and Estonia. There are also frequent ferries from Kiel in Germany, and Karlshamn in Sweden, to Klaipėda on Lithuania’s Baltic coast (wwww.krantas.lt).
