Almost 55,000 passengers used Tallinn Airport in May, the highest number in nine months. Flights were 46% full on average.
Eero Pargmae, the commercial manager of Tallinn Airport, said demand for travel had built up and tickets were selling well.
“Vaccination, of course, plays a very important role in the recovery of travel, and vaccine passports and other possible solutions that facilitate cross-border movement will become important,” he said.
In May, flights to Paphos (Ryanair), Paris and Munich (airBaltic), Athens (Aegean Airlines) and Kharkiv (Wizzair) were added to the flight schedule. Nyxair started flying to Helsinki three times a week with a 34-seat aircraft and there were also flights chartered by holiday companies.
In total, there were regular flights to 24 destinations in May and 1,881 fights operated, an average of 60 landings and take-offs a day.
Since January, 185,581 passengers have passed through the airport and 7,301 flights have taken place. (ERR/Business World Magazine)
