Fewer than 10,500 passengers used Tallinn Airport in May
In May, 10,523 passengers passed through Tallinn Airport - 3.5 percent of the total number of passengers in May 2019. But departures and passenger numbers are slowly increasing.
Compared to the previous month, departures increased and passengers numbers improved.
Eero Pärgmäe, Commercial Manager of Tallinn Airport said: "May brought us good news about the reopening of routes and the increase in passenger numbers. At the same time, it must be remembered today that many countries still have an emergency situation or various restrictions which make travel a little more difficult than usual. However, the situation is beginning to ease and we believe that free and unrestricted travel will resume in the near future."
Pärgmäe said the airport is forecasting that by the end of the summer it will have almost 30 routes in operation.
In May, it was possible to fly to 10 destinations and Frankfurt, Helsinki and Amsterdam had the largest passenger volumes. A total of 1,078 flights took place in May, more than half of which were non-commercial, mainly private and training flights, and a third were scheduled passenger flights.
By the end of the first week of June, 12 routes from Tallinn Airport will be open. In the second half of June, various airlines are planning to restore additional routes, which will depend on the easing of general international travel restrictions.
The airport asks passengers to stay home in if they fell ill. Passengers must also follow the hygiene requirements in the airport and on planes and the 2+2 rule in the terminal.
