Estonian Air's Tallinn-Tartu flights full for 30%

Juhan Tere, BC, Tallinn, 07.04.2011.Print version
Customers flying Estonian Air's new route between Tallinn and Tartu, which began five weeks ago to give southern Estonians and visitors a flight to the country's second biggest urban area, have on average filled up 30% of the airplane seats for that flight.

"Based on the five weeks, we can say that the dynamic of passenger numbers shows a trend of growth and the number of reservations booked a week ahead has also risen from week to week," said the company's public relations director, Ilona Eskelinen.

 

Without going into specifics, Eskelinen said customer numbers should find an equilibrium in the next three months. The large majority of customers using the new route transfer to and from international flights, writes LETA.

 

The 40-minute flights, which are offered daily Monday to Saturday, leave Tartu in the early morning and leave Tallinn just before midnight. The most popular way to travel between the two cities is by road, with the journey taking 2 to 2.5 hours. A rail trip takes 2.5 to 3 hours.
