980 passengers use Tallinn-Stockholm air route first season

The seasonal Pärnu-Stockholm air route launched by Estonian Air in collaboration with Pärnu spas carried 980 passengers while in operation from 30 April to 23 August.
Estonian Air spokesperson Ilona Eskelinen told BNS on Monday that without collaboration with the Tervis sanatorium and the Strand spa and conference hotel launch of the air route and its operation would not have been possible.
She added that the airline was satisfied with the result so far.
“Plans for next year depend to a large degree on the wishes and readiness of co-operation partners, as well as on the fate of the Pärnu airport,” Eskelinen said when asked about plans for next season.
During the first months of operation flights took place twice weekly on Thursdays and Sundays, and from 2 July onwards on Sundays only, like had been planned, she said.
The route targeted mainly Scandinavian tourists and was operated with a 33-seat Saab 340 aircraft.
