Tallinn Airport not to build new LCCT as Ryanair reduces Tallin network for winter 2012/13
Estonia's Tallinn Airport spokesperson Erik Sakkov said the airport was "planning to complete a new terminal for budget airlines by the end of 2013 but this plan is now obviously shelved" as Ryanair reduces destinations from Tallinn for winter 2012/13 from 10 to three. As reported by LETA and Postimees, Ryanair plans to reopen some of the cancelled routes in 2013. Ryanair Nordic and Baltic states marketing and sales manager Elina Hakkarainen said, "I confirm that Ryanair has currently this winter season three destinations on sale, which is by five less than at the same time last year. It is not possible for us to fly on these routes due to the current high fuel price cheaply enough." Tallinn Airport expects to serve 2.2 million passengers in 2012.
