Estonian Air, an airline from Estonia, is offering a new service from London City Airport in the UK, to Tallinn, Estonia.
The new thrice weekly service commences from March 1, 2013, with services expanded to six times a week from June 1, 2013. The service will be operated with a new 112-seater Embraer E190 aircraft.
Tero Taskila, the chief executive officer of Estonian Air, said, ‘London has been an important destination of the Estonian Air’s network and we wanted to improve the current schedule with two weekly flights with more frequent one. The start is tied to the delivery of the new Embraer E190 jet. Flights to new London City Airport, with more frequent schedule, (will be) giving our customers greater choice when travelling between Tallinn and London.
I would like to stress that our new flight plan suits considerably better the business travellers by making the connection between the two capitals not only more frequent, but also shorter in duration.’
The three return flights a week will be operated on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, in lieu of an earlier service offered from London Gatwick Airport. The services from London Gatwick Airport are being suspended with the onset of the airline’s 2012 Winter Schedule.
Declan Collier, the chief executive officer of London City Airport, said, ‘London City Airport is delighted to welcome Estonian-Air and we’re very much looking forward to the commencement of the LCY-Tallinn service in 2013.
Known as one of the most rapidly developing economies in the Baltic sea, Tallinn is establishing itself as a destination of choice for UK travellers – who will now be able to get there via the only London airport actually in London – quickly and easily. Tallinn will also provide passengers with easy connections to Moscow and St Petersburg.’
