Air-Travel:

Recommended: The closest airport to Klaipeda is the Palanga airport (PLQ). This airport is 20 minutes north of Klaipeda in the resort town of Palanga and is an easy taxi ride or bus ride to the university venue/lodgings.

Airlines: Most international travelers come to Klaipeda/Palanga through Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) by way of Copenhagen or Baltic Air, which comes through Riga. 

If you are coming from the U.S. we recommend flying SAS through Copenhagen, though Baltic Air through Riga is commonly travelled as well. Be careful about reading the luggage requirements for each airline, as these airlines can have precise expectations or up-charges for what other airlines might consider standard. 

For Adventurers:

The capital of Lithuania, Vilnius, is a four-hour train ride from Klaipeda, and the train is inexpensive and comfortable (17.50 EUR for coach, 25 EUR for first class). Vilnius often has less expensive airfare options from a very diverse number of airlines. The “Airport Hotel” in Vilnius really is right across the street from the airport, and still is an easy bus ride or Uber ride to the Old Town or other historical sites. Radisson Blu Old Town is a higher-priced favorite hotel if you're staying a while, though The Corner Hotel is a great budget option with a phenomenal breakfast if you're willing to walk an extra 10 minutes to Old Town.

The capital of Latvia, Riga, is a four-hour bus ride from Klaipeda, and the bus is very affordable (though less comfortable at times depending on what bus you get). More information will be shared in the near future about recommended hotels if you'd like an extended layover in Riga as well.

These "Adventurer" options might require more thoughtful, smaller luggage, as the busses are sometimes smaller, and the train, while it will have spaces for larger luggage, requires getting your luggage on and off of a train that is a few steps up.
