Martin Gauss, CEO of airBaltic, said the company will continue to increase its service volumes in Tallinn and will add three new direct flights to exciting destinations this year, as well as increase the number of weekly departures to other destinations departing from Tallinn.
"To serve the increasing number of direct flights that will start departing from Tallinn from the summer of 2019, two of our brand new Airbus A220-300 aircraft are based in the Estonian capital already," Gauss said.
airBaltic's passenger numbers in Estonia grew by 14 percent year on year in 2018. During the 12 months, the company flew over 440,000 passengers to and from Estonia.
The Latvian carrier offers direct flights from Tallinn to Amsterdam, Berlin, London, Oslo, Paris, Stockholm, Vienna and Vilnius, and in addition to them connecting flights out of Riga. In June, the company will launch new direct flights to Malaga, Brussels and Copenhagen.
airBaltic flies altogether to more than 70 destinations from Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius. It is set to operate direct flights from Riga to Dublin, Stuttgart and Lviv in the summer season of 2019, speaking of services from the capital of Latvia.
