In May, 10,523 passengers passed through Tallinn Airport, which is 3.5% of the volume of passengers served in May of the previous year. Although both the choice of direct routes and the number of passengers have started to recover compared to April, frequencies are still sparse, and the number of passengers is recovering slowly.
“May brought us good news about the reopening of routes and the increase in the number of passengers. At the same time, it must be borne in mind today that many countries still have a state of emergency or various restrictions in force that make travel a little more difficult than usual. However, the situation has begun to ease, and we believe that free and unrestricted travel will resume in the near future, “said Eero Pärgmäe, Commercial Manager of Tallinn Airport, adding that by the end of the summer, almost 30 routes are expected to be served.
In May, it was possible to fly on ten routes, of which Frankfurt, Helsinki, and Amsterdam had the largest passenger volumes. A total of 1,078 flight operations took place in May, more than half of which was non-commercial, mainly private and training flights, and a third were scheduled passenger flights.
By the end of the first week of June, 12 routes from Tallinn Airport will be open. In the second half of June, various airlines are planning to restore a number of additional routes, which will depend on the easing of general international travel restrictions.
The health and well-being of employees and passengers are very important to Tallinn Airport, and in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus, it is important that all those at the airport follow simple and important rules:
- If you are sick or feeling unwell, stay home, do not go on a trip.
- Before going on a trip, familiarize yourself with the rules of the destination for arriving passengers, as they may differ from the rules in force in Estonia. Also, check your airline’s website to see if and what requirements apply to passengers on board, as these may also be different for airlines: some airlines may require masks.
- We ask all people who have come to see off or meet passengers to say goodbye and greet them outside the passenger terminal and not to enter the premises of the passenger terminal.
- The 2 + 2 rule applies in and around the airport. Whenever possible, keep a sufficient distance from other people.
- Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds and use a disinfectant that can be found across the terminal.
