airBaltic launches two new routes from Talinn

airBaltic has launches two new direct routes from Tallinn Airport to Stockholm Arlanda Airport and Oslo Airport.

Since the expansion in Estonia, the carrier now bases two aircraft at Tallinn Airport and it will fly 12 times a week to Stockholm and twice a week to Oslo.

airBaltic chief executive officer, Martin Gauss said: “We are strongly determined for further growth, and part of airBaltic business plan is to strengthen our position as the leading Baltic airline.

“By operating 12 direct flights from Tallinn in 2019, we will significantly increase our presence in Estonia and continue to offer the best connectivity to our Estonian passengers.”

“Going forward, we plan to further increase the number of direct flights from all three Baltic capitals. Ultimately, we aim to connect Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius with one stop to almost any destination in the world,” Gauss added.

In addition, airBaltic continues to offer direct flights from Tallinn to London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, Vienna and Vilnius as well as convenient connections via Riga.

During first nine months of 2018 the airline transported over 330,000 passengers to and from Estonia. The airline has carried 12 per cent more passengers in Estonia to its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, CIS and the Middle East than during the same period last year.

For summer 2019, airBaltic has introduced three new destinations from Tallinn to Malaga, Brussels and Copenhagen. In addition, next summer it will launch a new direct route connecting Riga and Stuttgart.
