Moving in to claim a segment vacated by Flybe, Estonian Air will offer another way to get to Stockholm next month.

It will fly to Bromma airport, which is just 8 kilometers from the city center and near headquarters of some Estonian-based companies, twice each weekday, starting September 29.

"Meetings with business customers and market analysis showed that the flights to Sweden require more freedom of choice," said a member of the national carrier's management board, Indrek Randveer, on Postimees's online site.

One of the only options for the one-hour hop across the water, the carrier's flight to Arlanda, is generally priced at 150-200 euros. The introductory rate for the Bromma link will be about half that.

Estonian Air flies to Arlanda 23 times a week.
