Tallinn Airport will be making the transition to its winter schedule at the end of October. For passengers, this will mean a choice of 40 destinations to which they can fly direct from Tallinn. They include daily flights to London, with the British capital now being served by three airlines. Winter will also see the resumption of regular flights to Cyprus, and the Dublin route is now open year-round.
Traditionally, the winter season brings fewer flights than summer, which means less hectic and more comfortable travel for passengers. “Our winter schedule has something for everyone, whether they’re interested in taking a city break, going on a skiing trip or escaping to warmer climes,” said Eero Pärgmäe, a member of the management board of Tallinn Airport.
The choice of destinations for city breaks includes some of Europe’s biggest drawcards: Berlin, London, Paris and Rome. “But places like Vienna, Nuremberg and Istanbul are also ripe for exploring,” Pärgmäe recommended. He added that the winter schedule in Tallinn Airport features as many as seven destinations for winter sports lovers. “Anyone thinking of hitting the ski slopes can choose to fly to Salzburg, Milan, Munich, Zürich, Nuremberg, Vienna or Venice Treviso, all of which are well connected to some of the best resorts in Europe,” he explained.
Package tourism also remains popular, with charter flights to Tenerife, Hurghada and Sharm El-Sheikh. “Trips to those resorts can be booked through travel agents,” said Pärgmäe, who added that Ryanair will be resuming flights to the Cypriot city of Paphos for the winter season.
Although the peak season for travel has passed, Pärgmäe says people remain as interested in travelling as ever. “The enormous queues we saw in European airports in summer are now largely under control and the quality of flight services is recovering rapidly,” he said. “We’ve all drawn conclusions from the lessons we learned this summer, and preparations for disruption-free winter and summer 2023 schedules are already being made.”
