British Airways to fly to Tallinn starting March 2017 (9)
Beginning Mar. 28 next year, British Airways will fly the Tallinn-London route twice a week, Tallinn Airport announced on Tuesday.
The flights will be on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The Tuesday flight will leave London at 8:00 a.m., and later in the day return to London, leaving Tallinn at 1:55 p.m.
The Saturday flight will leave London at 3:35 p.m., and again fly back from Tallinn to London at 9:35 p.m. Both flights will connect Tallinn to London Heathrow Airport.
Tallinn Airport CEO Piret Murk-Dubout said that the new flight was a particularly important achievement guaranteeing Estonia’s external connections. “British Airways is a company whose arrival at Tallinn Airport we have dreamed of for years. As a result of hard work in the past year, the day has finally arrived, and in March we will have the opportunity to welcome the first airplane in the colors of British Airways in Tallinn,” Murk-Dubout said.
According the airport’s marketing director, Eero Pärgmäe, it is initially planned that British Airways will operate seasonal Tallinn-London flights, but this might change in the future. He added that London was the destination with the biggest number of passengers, and that on from the end of March next year, a total number of six flights a week would connect the two capital cities.
