75,682 passengers passed through Tallinn Airport in July, which is nearly 24% of the number of passengers in last July. 25,103 passengers passed through the Airport in June, i.e. the number of passengers increased over three times in one month.
“In the past two months, the number of destinations has significantly increased, offering people opportunities to fly both to holiday and business trips. In July, flights to Warsaw, Milan, Dusseldorf, Edinburgh and Dublin were restored. A few flights to Malaga and Girona in Spain also took place. Also to destinations in Ukraine like Kiev, Harkiv and Lviv, which currently are suspended again. It was possible to take charter flights to Greece,” said Riivo Tuvike, chairman of the board of Tallinn Airport.
“Unfortunately the situation is constantly changing and depending on the number of cases in destination countries, changes in flight plans may take place very quickly. Thus, we ask the passengers to follow the real-time flight plan and contact their airline if necessary,” Tuvike said.
Also the average percentage of filled seats in flights improved in July, reaching 53%. “The largest passenger volumes and higher percentage of filled seats were mainly related to flights to countries with lower infection coefficient. Thus, one of the most popular destinations in July was Vienna where flights were provided by Air Baltic, Ryanair and Wizzair”.
In average, 2,140 flight operations took place in July, which in average is 69 landings and takeoffs per day.
As of the beginning of August, the total number of direct lines with regular flights is 20. Tallinn Airport asks all the passengers to check the restrictions and requirements of the country of destination before the trip. Information is available on websites Reisi Targalt and Re-open EU.
