British Airways to launch a route between London Heathrow and Tallinn

British Airways is to start flying between London Heathrow and Tallinn, starting from 28 March 2017, initially twice a week.

The CEO of Tallinn Airport, Piret Mürk-Dubout, said this was an important achievement in guaranteeing Estonia’s connections to the rest of the world.

“British Airways is one of the most significant airlines in the world and we have dreamt about seeing them at Tallinn Airport for many years,” she said. “Our hard work has finally paid off and in March, we will be able to greet the first British Airways plane in Tallinn.”

The flights will take place twice a week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The Tuesday flight will depart London at 8:00 and Tallinn at 13:55, the Saturday flight will leave London at 15:45 and Tallinn at 21:35.

Heathrow Airport is connected to the centre of London by the underground and it connects passengers with 220 destinations with British Airways from London.
