Estonian Air will start flights to Vienna and Hannover
Estonian Air will open several new routes in 2012 to Europe’s most important cities as well as less known regional centres in Nordic countries. ”The logic behind the selection of these destinations is to develop Tallinn into a hub. This will bring more passengers to Estonia using Tallinn Airport as a transfer point in their journey onwards,” noted Tero Taskila, CEO of Estonian Air.
”Vienna is a major transit centre enabling us to cover the Balkan and Southern Europe regions in the future. Austria, which is known for its attractive travel and tourism environments, is also worth of visiting for skiing and city breaks,” explained Rauno Parras, Estonian Air Commercial Manager, reasons behind the decisions.

”Another new destination – Hannover – has geographically very good location residing in the middle of Germany. Also, Deutsche Bahn’s biggest centre is located in Hannover. Good connections with Deutsche Bahn from Hannover, customers can get to major cities in Germany and surrounding countries within 2 hour transit times. Tickets to Deutsche Bahn's attractive rail network can be bought from biggest travel agents together with Estonian Air tickets,” noted Rauno Parras.
„As additional benefit our passengers arriving from Tallinn in Hannover will receive a free HannoverCard during the first year of operation (until 24 March 2013) as well as a free ticket for fairs taking place at that time in Hannover. The HannoverCard, that can be obtained by showing the boarding pass in the Hannover airport information desk, is a travel pass for all busses, S-Bahn trains, and trams within the entire Greater Hannover transport network (GVH),” added Parras.
