A 48-seat NyxAir aircraft will start flying on the Tallinn-Kuressaare route from Monday, December 21.
NyxAir CEO Jaanus Ojamets told ERR that ticket prices for the 40-minute flight will remain the same at €26 for a standard ticket and €34 for a flexible ticket. The tickets are already on sale and can be purchased from flynyx.com.
The NyxAir turboprop aircraft ATR 42-500 was built in 2005 and will fly back and forth twice a day on weekdays and once a day on weekends.
It took the Road Administration more than two years and several legal challenges to find a carrier for the route from the capital to the capital of Estonia's largest island. NyxAir takes over from Transaviabaltika.
