“It is really great that we once again can offer every traveller in western Sweden direct service to Tallinn from Göteborg Landvetter Airport. And it is important that our region is even more accessible for all Estonians,” says Helena Wiberg, acting airport director at Göteborg Landvetter Airport.
Estonian Air will fly the Tallinn–Göteborg Landvetter route using Embraer 170-type aircraft with seating for 76 passengers or Bombardier CRJ 900s with seating for 88. Beginning February 1, there will be four departures a week to Tallinn – Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
In the Göteborg Access regional network, Swedavia–Göteborg Landvetter Airport works together with Göteborg & Co, Visit Sweden, the West Sweden Tourist Board and Business Region Göteborg to develop the offering and possibilities for travel to Gothenburg and western Sweden. The direct route to Tallinn is a further example of this successful collaboration.
“The fact that Estonian Air is now launching service most likely means that there will be a lot of people travelling from Estonia. Last spring, we paid a successful visit to the people at Estonian Air, in which we showcased our city in an attractive manner, and this is the direct result,” says Lennart Johansson at Göteborg & Co.
“Gothenburg is a very good fit with our route network since Gothenburg is the second most popular destination in Sweden for Estonians, and we foresee a great demand,” says Rauno Parras, chief commercial officer at Estonian Air.
Tallinn was among the non-stop destinations on offer from Göteborg Landvetter Airport until November 2011. Estonian Air served the Tallinn–Göteborg Landvetter route in 2004 and 2005
