On June 1, the Latvian national airline airBaltic will launch a new route to link the Estonian capital of Tallinn and the Swedish capital of Stockholm.
Tero Taskila, Chief Commercial Officer of airBaltic: “More than 3 million tourists from Scandinavian countries visit Estonia each year. We clearly see that these markets are underserved and require more direct connections to Estonia. By introducing the Tallinn-Stockholm route, airBaltic is making a strategic step. airBaltic will serve seven direct routes from Tallinn, offer seven daily flights to Riga, and seventy seven onward destinations via Riga in Europe, CIS and the Middle East.”
A full schedule of airBaltic flights can be found on the company’s homepage at www.airbaltic.com The website also offers travel packages (flights +hotels) at -20% discount, and a wide range of other products and services.
For 2009 airBaltic has announced 20 million EUR preliminary profit, and achieved 6% passenger growth to 2.75 million passengers. In 2010, airBaltic has so far announced eleven new destinations from its Riga hub including Madrid, Belgrade, Vaasa, Umea, Beirut, Amman, Manchester, Rovaniemi, Kuusamo, Visby and Lulea.
Regardless of the point of departure, airBaltic offers convenient connections over its North Hub Riga to the airline’s network in Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, CIS and the Middle East.
