Over 50 destinations to be available from Tallinn Airport this summer

The forthcoming summer season will give travelers a choice of more than 50 destinations to which direct flights will operate from Tallinn Airport.

These will include three new airlines, with Eurowings flying to Prague, Transavia France to Paris and flydubai to Dubai, the airport company said in a press release.

Six new destinations will also be offered — the aforementioned Prague and Dubai, as well as Burgas, and relaunched flights to Billund, Malta and Rome. The Dubai flights will directly link Estonia to the United Arab Emirates for the first time in the country’s aviation history. In addition to these new destinations, almost all 17 of the airlines flying out of Tallinn will be operating more frequent flights this summer, with 20 percent more tickets on sale than in 2023 and exceeding the same figure for 2019.

Eero Pargmae, member of the management board of AS Tallinna Lennujaam, said the airport is delighted with the summer schedule.

“It’s an extraordinary year when you get to announce that as many as three new airlines will be coming to Tallinn!” he said. “Neither Eurowings, which forms part of the Lufthansa group, nor Transavia France, which belongs to the KLM/Air France group, are particularly well-known among Estonian travelers just yet, but we hope that both the Prague and Paris flights attract a good number of passengers. And the flydubai flights launching on Oct. 12 will open up the Emirates network to Estonian jet-setters, meaning even more options for long-haul travel. Quite a few older destinations will be making a comeback this summer as well, so there’ll be plenty for everyone to choose from.”

The highest number of additional connections will be offered on the Stockholm route, with both SAS and Ryanair increasing their number of flights to the Swedish capital, to a combined total of eight per day. This will also be the biggest route during the summer season in terms of number of seats. On the Helsinki route, flight numbers will grow to up to 10 a day. Elsewhere, Air Baltic will be flying from Tallinn to 22 destinations, offering good business and holiday connections alike, including on new routes to Burgas, Malta and Billund.

Pargmae said that given the bigger picture, the airport is very grateful to those travelers who choose to fly from Tallinn.

“Our combined efforts have resulted in something pretty amazing,” he said. “With a national population comparable to that of just one part of any of Europe’s largest cities, we’ve managed to put together and maintain a more than decent portfolio of destinations. That’s quite an unusual achievement in European aviation.”

On March 11, Tallinn was named the best airport in Europe in the 2-5 million passenger category for the sixth year running. It was also recognized in three subcategories — most enjoyable airport in Europe, easiest airport journey in Europe, and cleanest airport in Europe.
