The Estonian national airline Estonian Air will start a code-share partnership with Scandinavian Airlines on Trondheim route from May 2, 2012, the company said in a statement.
"We are glad about extension of the cooperation with SAS. This will significantly improve Estonian Air visibility at foreign markets, which in turn increases the number of potential passengers," said Rauno Parras, CCO of Estonian Air.
"Possibility to buy flight tickets through SAS website will definitely increase interest in Tallinn and Estonia. Hopefully this will lead to many more Norwegians entering into Tallinn Airport," said Katrin Luhaäär, SAS District Manager in Estonia and Latvia.
Estonian Air opened the route to Trondheim on September 5, 2011.
According to Rauno Parras the route has seen activity especially coming from Trondheim side, writes LETA. "We see that Norwegians use this route both for flying to Tallinn as well as for connecting flights via Tallinn, for example to Helsinki, Moscow and Hannover," said Parras.
The ticket prices from Trondheim to Tallinn start at 58.08 euros and from Tallinn to Trondheim at 49.90 euros. The price includes all fees, taxes, baggage, snacks and soft drinks. Estonian Air is the National Partner of the 2012 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship in Finland.
