Today, Their Majesties the King and the Queen of the Belgians launched a three-day visit to Lithuania, highlighting 100 years of diplomatic relations between Belgium and Lithuania. This state visit, in light of the Russian war in Ukraine, will focus on military solidarity, but also on the technologies of the future to achieve the dual green and digital transition. 

The journey from Brussels Military Airport (EBMB) to Vilnius, Lithuania (VNO), was onboard the newly acquired Airbus A330-200 of Air Belgium, registered OE-LCL. Appropriately the flight number was KF1/ABB1. The flight departed from Brussels at 09:59 (UTC+2) and landed in Vilnius at 12:59 (UTC+3), exactly two hours later.

On Wednesday, King Philip is scheduled to visit the Belgian troops deployed in Pabrade, Lithuania, to protect the Eastern flank of NATO in the framework of the “enhanced Forward Presence” mission with, among others, six Lockheed-Martin F-16 fighter jets.
