Tallin Airport has decided to expand it`s air traffic area. The construction work has begun already and will continue until 2017.
Expansion of the air traffic area will improve flight safety and environmental friendliness and boost the capacity of the airport. But during construction work the runway will be closed between 00:30 and 6:00 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
These restrictions will not affect planned flights unless they are late arriving, in which case they may be diverted to Helsinki or Rīga. However, flight safety and the regular functioning of flights must be ensured at the airport while construction is ongoing.
All airlines have been informed of the restrictions and flight schedules have taken them into account.
Construction is being co-financed from the EU Cohesion Fund. The deadline for completion of the work is the end of 2017.
