Number of passengers increased by 3% compared to 2013, caused by more flights on both scheduled and charter services. Three new airlines contributed to growth in available seats: Air Lituanica launced flights from Vilnius, Vueling from Barcelona and TAP Portugal from Lisbon. In addition AirBaltic introduced flights between Tallinn and Paris. Estonian Air launced flights to Bromma in Stockholm as well as summer services to Split and Berlin. The busiest route in terms of passengers was Frankfurt, followed by Helsinki and Riga.
The „average“ aircraft weighed 40 tonnes, had 95 seats and carried 64 passengers, with scheduled flights booked to a 67% capacity on average.
The biggest growth in terms of passengers was achieved by Lufthansa, however most airlines showed good results. A very good performance was delivered by Turkish Airlines, who is going to add even more flights to Istanbul from coming summer season. Most popular destinations among growing number of charter passengers were also the resorts in Turkey. The longest charter flight arrived to Tallinn from Osaka, Japan.
