New direct flights to Estonian capital
“We are very pleased that we have been able to add Talinn as a new destination to our international offer,” said Charlotte Ljunggren, Airport Director at Göteborg Landvetter Airport.
The new route is expected to be popular with both business and private travellers.
“There has been strong demand for this direct route so we expect a good response from passengers. Estonia has strong business ties with Sweden and now we facilitate the exchange and create even more opportunities for business,” said Kristel Penu, Chief Commercial Officer at Nordica.
Nordica, an Estonian airline, will service the route in collaboration with LOT Polish Airlines.
