Airlines and destinations


After Finnair ended flights from Tartu in October 2022[4] there were no regular commercial passenger flights to Tartu. In 2024, Finnair won the procurement for subsidized flights and the Helsinki line was reopened in March.[5] In April 2024, the flights were suspended for a month due to Russian GPS jamming.[6] The airport requires GNSS for initial approach on landings.[7]
