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.

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.
