This month, Edinburgh Airport has announced that it will be launching a brand new route to Tallinn, Estonia. The service, which will be a three-times weekly summer service, has been welcomed by Scottish travellers, who wish to visit the stunning medieval Estonian capital city.
The flights, which will begin on 28 May and will be in operation until 3 October each year, will be run by Nordic Aviation in cooperation with Adria Airways. So far, this is the only Scottish flight that carries passengers to the Estonian capital, which has become a tourist hotspot over the years, due to its UNESCO World Heritage status and its medieval charm.
Gordon Dewer, chief executive of Edinburgh Airport commented on the new route:
“We are delighted that Edinburgh Airport has a direct new flight into Tallinn and the three times weekly service which is perfectly-timed for weekend city-breaks.
“This announcement is yet further confirmation of Edinburgh Airport’s position as the leader for business and tourism connectivity between Scotland and international destinations.
“It is greatly encouraging that Nordic Aviation recognises the growing demand for connectivity to and from Edinburgh – and this new service adds to our city’s and Scotland’s growing international profile.
“With over 11 million passengers through the doors at Edinburgh Airport in 2015 – we are continuing to grow, create jobs and make a positive contribution for Scotland’s economy.”
