Tallinn Airport to build new cheap flights terminal

12 April 2012 (BNS)

The Estonian state-owned Tallinn Airport will next year will build an easily removable and extendable terminal for cheap flight airlines with parking space for five aircraft next to it.

Erik Sakkov, board member of Tallinn Airport, told reporters at a press conference on Thursday that the new terminal was intended for cheap flights airlines such as Ryanair, Easyjet and Norwegian that do not want to pay that much to the airport and do not need many airport services.

Sakkov said that the present airport building had been intended for the service of up to 2.5 million passengers a year and this year the airport forecasts about 2.3 million visits, of which 200,000 are transit passengers. But the visitors will not be distributed equally during the day and at certain times there is took little room in the terminal already now.

The new terminal is intended for the service of one million passengers and the space liberated from cheap flight airlines would pass into the disposition of Estonian Air and other traditional airlines, such as Lufthansa, SAS, LOT and CSA.
