Starting from 27 February 2011, Estonian Air will replace current flights on the Tartu-Stockholm route, operated twice a week, with flights between Tartu and Tallinn. Early morning flights from Tartu to Tallinn will be operated six times a week: on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Late evening flights from Tallinn to Tartu will be operated on the same days, with the exception on weekends, when Saturday flights are operated on Sundays instead.
The flight time is 45 minutes.
Current flights between Tartu and Stockholm are operated on Thursdays and Sundays, the last flight on the Tartu-Stockholm route will be operated on 19 December 2010.
“Direct connections from Tallinn airport to Scandinavia and other parts of Europe and Russia have been improved and will be improved in the nearest future even more. We believe that good departure and arriving times and increased flight frequency will help to fasten the development of Tartu as well as Tallinn Airport,” says Rauno Parras, Vice President Commercial of Estonian Air.
“Estonian Air’s plan to increase air traffic from Tartu by developing air traffic between Tartu and Tallinn is good news for whole Southern Estonia. This will ensure fast and convenient flight connections for local people almost to all of Europe’s biggest cities,” says Urmas Kruuse, Mayor of Tartu.
The flight schedule is designed so that passengers starting their flight from Tartu can get through Tallinn comfortably and with minimum waiting time to early morning connection flights to Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Moscow, Vilnius, Kuressaare, Oslo, Stockholm etc. The late evening return flight to Tartu offers good connection for those who are returning from Copenhagen, Brussels, London.
