Airlines from Singapore, Oman and Qatar will participate at a two-day aviation conference in Tallinn on May 20 to 22 to start negotiations for opening new routes with Estonian Air.

Minister of Economic Affairs Juhan Parts recently signed aviation agreements with Singapore and Qatar. The document with Oman is still in preparation, Eesti Päevaleht reported.

According to Tero Taskila, CEO of Estonian Air, all three countries are eager to open new flight routes to Europe. Thanks to these international agreements, Tallinn may soon become one of the hubs in the air traffic between Asia and Europe.

Erik Sakkov, board member of Tallinn Airport said that the airport has the capacity of receiving long-haul flights and serving considerably more transit passengers than at present.

The 7th Routes Europe aviation conference in Tallinn will bring together representatives of over 75 airlines worldwide.
