As announced already in 2018, flag carrier Nordica closed down its Oslo, Amsterdam and St Petersburg routes on January 14. The reduced flight plan leaves the airline with eight direct routes this winter.
The destinations still available for direct flights from Tallinn are Stockholm, Vilnius, Copenhagen, Brussels, Kiev, Warsaw, Vienna and Munich, the airline said.
Different from previous years, the company will also drop some of its summer routes, namely those with direct flights to Berlin, Hamburg, Rijeka and Gothenburg. This means that instead of last summer’s 21 direct routes, Nordica will only have 13 in 2019.
The routes are closed down because keeping them open wouldn’t make sense commercially, the airline announced in November last year. Very similar to its bankrupt predecessor Estonian Air, Nordica’s business strategy has been to go for various lease contracts with other airlines. (ERR/Business World Magazine)
