In Estonian passenger aviation a considerable 19% growth has been observed by the Tallinn Airport in 2017, which has explained the increase in passenger numbers partly with unusually bad weather conditions.
Tallinn Airport’s commercial director, Eero Pargmae, has said that the Estonia’s busiest airport is seeking to provide its services for some 2.9 million travelers in 2018, as the estimates have been calculated on the basis of forecasts and the available seats on flights.
Pargmae evaluated that the Estonian economy has lately been growing and wet weather in summer and winters with little snow has motivated a lot of people to fly away on holiday both in summer and winter.
At the Tallinn Airport, the routes to Helsinki, Frankfurt and Riga are the most popular, increasing the fierce competition with rivals in the region, Tallinn offers low-fare flights by Ryanair and Vueling, with Wizz Air joining the two from this summer. (BNN/Business World Magazine)
