Three million passengers crossed the Tallinn Airport threshold through November


As of November three million passengers have passed through Tallinn Airport; last year, the figure of three million was reached exactly on the last day of the year. 242,000 passengers passed through the airport in November, which is 6.6% more than the same time last year.

According to Eero Pärgmäe, Commercial Manager at Tallinn Airport, the opening of the Lufthansa route in addition to Frankfurt also between Tallinn and Munich was a major contributor to the growth. “The termination of Nordica flights was also compensated by LOT, which will continue to operate on the Warsaw, Stockholm, and Brussels routes,” said Pärgmäe.

In November, Air Baltic served 24.3% of all passengers, and LOT had a market share of 11%, Ryanair and Finnair were at 10%. The largest number of passengers were added to hub airports, mainly to Warsaw and Berlin, served by Ryanair and Air Baltic this winter.

In November, a total of 29 destinations were available for scheduled flights, served by 13 airlines. The average occupancy rate of scheduled flights increased from 66% last year to 76%.

In November, charter flights to the Turkish and Greek resorts ended and the winter tourist season began with flights mainly to Egypt and the Canary Islands.
