Estonian Air carried 3.7% more passengers in September

In September 2014, Estonian Air carried altogether 51 960 passengers, an increase of 3.7% compared to the same month last year when Estonian Air carried 50 119 passengers. In September Estonian Air operated 1032 flights, an increase of 12.4%.

In the first nine months Estonian Air carried altogether 420 223 passengers, a decrease of 1.9% compared to 2013. In the same period, Estonian Air operated 8195 flights, which is 1.1% less compared to the same period last year.

“The passengers’ volume has been in upward trend since June, and we believe the growth during the second half of the year will compensate the fall of the first half.  The increase in passengers’ volume has been influenced by bigger number of destinations and good performance of charter flights. In September we started to fly from Tallinn to Stockholm Bromma in addition to Arlanda Airport. This is a good alternative for business passengers giving them faster and more convenient service when flying to Stockholm,” says Indrek Randveer, the CCO of Estonian Air. “At the same time we have to take measures to respond to the impact of unstable situation in Ukraine and intensified competition which have negative effect on our results,” added Randveer.

The 15-minute punctuality of Estonian Air flights in the first nine months was 92.7%, an increase of 1.8 percentage points compared to the same period last year. The regularity was 99.3%, a decrease of 0.3 percentage points compared to the same period last year. In September the punctuality was 92.1 and regularity 99.6 percentage.

Estonian Air is aiming to provide Estonia with reliable and regular double daily connections to destinations of strategic importance and of substantial demand. Being a small country on the edge of Europe, Estonia depends on such connections, and Estonian Air is committed to provide these services.
