Tallinn Airport not to build new terminal

Juhan Tere, BC, Tallinn, 11.09.2012.Print version
The decision of Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair to cut its destinations from Tallinn for the winter from 10 to 3 has forced Tallinn Airport to shelve plans to build new passenger terminal, reports LETA/BBN, referring to Postimees.

"We were planning to complete a new terminal for budget airlines by the end of 2013, but this plan is now obviously shelved," said Erik Sakkov, the representative of the Tallinn Airport.


Tallinn Airport expects to serve 2.2 million passengers this year.


As reported, Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair has closed seven routes out of ten from Tallinn, but hopes to reopen some of them next spring.


"I confirm that Ryanair has currently this winter season three destinations on sale, which is by five less than at the same time last year. It is not possible for us to fly on these routes due to the current high fuel price cheaply enough," Ryanair's Nordic and Baltic states marketing and sales manager Elina Hakkarainen said.


During this winter, Ryanair plans to fly from Tallinn only to London, Oslo and Milan. Last winter it flew also to Düsseldorf, Stockholm, Dublin, Bremen and Barcelona.


The last flight to Stockholm and Barcelona will depart on October 26, to Frankfurt – on October 27, to Manchester and Düsseldorf – on November 5 and to Dublin and Bremen on November 6, 2012.
