Finnair to expand services to Estonia’s second city

Move will rehabilitate Tartu’s little-used international airport
Finnair is expanding services between Helsinki and Tartu, Estonia’s second largest city, and re-timing schedules to create more convenient connections via Helsinki for European passengers. The move will rehabilitate Tartu’s airport, which has seen only occasional international flights in recent years.
Tartu is Estonia’s cultural and intellectual capital, home of the University of Tartu, founded in 1632, and has a large student population.
The flight between Helsinki and Tartu, which lasts 40 minutes, will be operated on behalf of Finnair by Flybe Finland with an ATR-72 aircraft. Flights will start on June 22.
