Passenger numbers at Tallinn Airport in November up 6% compared to last year

Almost 220 thousand passengers were served at Tallinn Airport in November and the number of passengers grew by 6% in comparison with November last year. The increase in passenger numbers was due to a busier schedule, with 91 more scheduled flights in November than at the same time last year and the number of seats on sale up 10% year-on-year.

In November, there were regular flights to 31 destinations. Traditionally, the most popular destinations of direct flights were the major hubs of Frankfurt, Helsinki and Riga. The airline with the largest market share in November was airBaltic – every fourth passenger travelling through Tallinn Airport used this airline. In November, airBaltic launched a new weekly seasonal route from Tallinn to Las Palmas in the Canary Islands. In addition, airBaltic will open seasonal flights to Geneva at the end of the year. In total, airBaltic flies to 15 destinations from Tallinn during the winter season. The next largest airline was Ryanair with nine destinations, whose flights were used by 14% of all passengers. Destinations in Egypt were the most popular among charter flights. In total, 2922 flight operations took place in November, with an average of 97 arrivals and departures each day.

According to Eero Pärgmäe, Member of the Management Board of Tallinn Airport, active preparations are already underway for putting together the summer flight schedule and we’re happy to share the first good news. “We’ve already announced the arrival of Transavia France in Estonia, which will start with flights to Paris in April. In addition, Eurowings will also start flying from Tallinn in the summer as a new airline that will connect Tallinn to Prague 3-4 times a week from the end of March. Eurowings is a German budget airline, which belongs to the Lufthansa Group. The tickets of both airlines are already on sale.”

In addition, a sufficient number of tickets to winter ski destinations such as Milan Bergamo, Milan Malpensa, Munich, Vienna and others are still available for the winter season. When booking tickets, it’s also worth looking at flights during the week, as they can be cheaper than weekend flights. The winter flight schedule of Tallinn Airport can be viewed here.
