Until recently, the airport had the I category precision approach and landing system. This means that the height when aircraft captains took the decision to land or terminate the approach to land at the airport was 60 meters and the horizontal runway visibility was 550 metres. With the category II system, the decision-taking height is reduced to 30 meters, and horizontal visibility is reduced to 350 metres. 
Siemens AG, which won a public tender to become contractor of this work, has supplemented the current signalling system of Vilnius Airport with approach and landing area lights; approximately 250 additional lights were installed. The value of the runway work project is LTL 4.86 million.
