Tallinn Airport served close to 228,000 passengers in July, with regular passenger numbers down by 1% on the same period last year, mostly due to the reduced number of offers on regular flights.
Marketing Director Eero Pärgmäe says that while flight load figures improved – with flights operating to 78% capacity – the number of seats on sale declined by 5%. “The summer season sees a tail-off in business trips, and it’s only as autumn approaches that the number of tickets offered on main routes increases again,” he explained. “Events in France, Germany and Turkey didn’t affect the number of passengers during the month.”
There were direct flights from Tallinn to 34 destinations in July, with the most popular hubs being Frankfurt, Rīga and Helsinki. In addition to resorts in Bulgaria and Spain, the hottest destinations in the summer season are Rome, Thessaloniki, Odessa and the Croatian cities of Split and Rijeka.
