Joy for families as Vilnius Airport opens a new play area

Families travelling through Vilnius Airport with young children will soon have a chance to relax before their flight. A new play area has been opened inside the airport allowing little ones to draw, explore with building blocks, or try the play station. Without doubt, some games will be attractive not just for little children, but teenagers and their parents as well.

A new play area is located inside the popular PANK’olis restaurant near the A1-A3 gates. The airport and restaurant’s decision to open a play area took roots in the desire to meet the needs of travelling families and offer them more entertainment options.

“We aimed to create a space for the little ones where they could have fun and be creative while giving their parents a chance to relax,” says Darius Latvys, Director of PANK’olis restaurant.

Director of Vilnius Airport Justinas Stepšys also shared his excitement about the new playground and is convinced it will be very successful.

“We are happy to offer travelling families an opportunity for joint entertainment. While parents are enjoying a snack or a cup of coffee, their children will be able to have fun nearby. The new play area will be attractive for children of all ages, from little ones who just started to walk to teenage passengers.

While some will enjoy drawing on a board and arranging magnets, others will be occupied with Lego blocks or PlayStation which is equally popular among many parents. We believe that everyone will find something of interest here,” says Justinas Stepšys.

New play area inside the PANK’olis Restaurant comes as an addition to the Samsung Entertainment Space which is already popular among slightly older passengers. The latter offers passengers Samsung tablets and smart phones with operating internet and games installed.

According to Justinas Stepšys, another entertainment place where passengers can spend time with their children is the FIlmSpot Cinema that shows short films and is located next to the departures gate.
