Routes 2012: Estonian Air to offer London City services from 2013

Baltic national carrier Estonian Air is to start serving London City Airport from spring next year when it resumes services to the UK capital. 

The carrier has announced it will inaugurate flights between Tallinn and London City on March 1st, 2013 having previously offered flights to London Gatwick.

The airport switch has been made possible by the airline’s continual fleet renewal and the arrival of additional Embrear E-Jet variants.

Estonian Air confirms it will initially introduce a three times weekly service between Tallinn and London City from March 1st, 2013 but has already planned frequency growth as additional aircraft arrive in its fleet. 

A fourth rotation will be introduced from May 2, 2013 while the route will increase to a six times weekly offering from June 1, 2013.

Estonian Air was the first operator to provide regular services between Estonia and the UK, but it now faces strong competition from low-cost operators easyJet and Ryanair.
