On Tuesday (January 16, 2024), Finnair announced the launch of new year-round service between Helsinki and Tartu in Southern Estonia starting March 31, 2024.  The route will operate twice daily, six days per week, with seamless connections to most of Finnair’s European, Asian and U.S. destinations.  Tartu is the ‘European Capital of Culture 2024’, with over 300 events arranged in the city and Southern Estonia this year.  Flights between Helsinki and Tartu will be operated with support from the Tartu City Government as PSO (Public Service Obligations) traffic.

Finnair will be the only airline operating flights to Tartu, and the 40 minute route between Helsinki and Tartu will be operated with an ATR regional turboprop aircraft.  Flights will depart Helsinki at 13:50 and 23:55, and will arrive in Tartu at 14:35 and 00:40+1 respectively.  The return flights depart Tartu at 06:00 and 15:00, arriving back in Helsinki at 06:40 and 15:40 respectively.  The new Estonian service complements Finnair’s existing flights between Helsinki and Tallinn, which operate up to 10 times daily.

Specializing in passenger and cargo traffic between Asia, North America and Europe, Finnair is a modern premium network airline with a competitive advantage due to their geographical location.  Sustainability is at the heart of everything Finnair does, and the carrier is committed to cutting their net emissions by 50 percent by the end of 2025 (compared to a 2019 baseline) and achieving carbon neutrality by the end of 2045.   In 2023, Finnair celebrated their 100th anniversary, making the carrier one of the oldest airlines in the world.  Finnair is a member of the global oneworld® alliance and the company’s shares are traded on the Nasdaq Helsinki stock exchange.
