Nordic Aviation has confirmed that it will launch a tri-weekly summer service between Edinburgh and Tallinn starting on May 28.
The new service, which will be operated in conjunction with Adria Airways until October 3, will become Scotland’s only flight to Estonia.
Edinburgh Airport’s chief executive, Gordon Dewar, said: “We’re delighted that Edinburgh Airport has a direct new flight into Tallinn and the three times weekly service which is perfectly-timed for weekend city-breaks.
“This announcement is yet further confirmation of Edinburgh Airport’s position as the leader for business and tourism connectivity between Scotland and international destinations.
“It is greatly encouraging that Nordic Aviation recognises the growing demand for connectivity to and from Edinburgh – and this new service adds to our city’s and Scotland’s growing international profile.
“With over 11 million passengers through the doors at Edinburgh Airport in 2015 – we are continuing to grow, create jobs and make a positive contribution for Scotland’s economy.”
Nordic Aviation board member Erik Sakkov added: “Edinburgh’s rich historical heritage makes it perfect for Estonian holiday makers who will enjoy a unique combination of ancient Scottish and modern European culture. Moreover, I’m sure that Tallinn and Estonia have a lot to offer for Scottish people too. Our country’s beautiful medieval capital, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Estonia’s diverse nature and fascinating cultural traditions make it possible that everyone will find something for themselves.”
