Due to the crisis caused by the COVID-19 virus, German bus company FlixBus is postponing the launch of its services from Tallinn to Western and Eastern European cities that had been planned for the first half of 2020.
Michal Leman, managing director of FlixBus in Poland, Ukraine and the Baltics, told BNS that, given the current situation, all plans to expand into new markets have been postponed and further developments will be announced as soon as possible.
This February, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications had approved FlixBus Polska's request to launch Tallinn-Berlin, Tallinn-Warsaw and Tallinn-Prague routes. FlixBus Estonia was registered in Estonia at the end of last year.
The company was founded in 2013 and has been active on the international market since 2015. FlixBus serves over 2,500 destinations on 30 markets.
