March with the biggest passenger numbers at Tallinn Airport

Tallinn Airport served more than 245,000 passengers in March, 5.3% more than in the same period last year and an all-time high for the month. An increase of 8.8% in the number of seats available for purchase on regular flights boosted passenger numbers.

Regular flights operated to 34 destinations during the month, the busiest routes being those to the nearby hubs of Helsinki, Frankfurt and Riga. Compared to March 2023, the most new flight options were to Istanbul, Tampere, Tenerife and Frankfurt. Two new routes were launched during the month: Eurowings began flying to Prague, and airBaltic resumed its seasonal flights to the Mediterranean resort of Nice. The biggest carriers in terms of passenger numbers during the month were airBaltic (27%) and Ryanair (14%).

Eero Pärgmäe, a member of the management board of AS Tallinna Lennujaam, describes the passenger numbers for Q1 as a whole as excellent. “Given the high rate of inflation at the moment, we’re delighted to see that people are still finding opportunities to travel,” he said. “The new direct flights to Prague are likely to attract people not only for their price, but also for the wealth of culture and entertainment the Czech capital has to offer. The route’s been one of the most sought after for many years among local travellers, who to date have had to fly to Prague via hub airports. Now they can fly there direct in little more than two hours.”

Elsewhere, a total of 5060 passengers passed through Estonia’s regional airports in March, including 3467 in Kuressaare and 1050 in Kärdla.
