I was wondering if there are still good routes within europe which are not covered or insufficent covered by any low-cost, traditional airline ?
I planned a trip to Tallin and found out that there is almost nothing flying except of Estonian Air.


Fly easyJet

Well, EasyJet flies to TLL from SXF and STN. Flynorid and Sterling have a joint flight CPH-TLL. Next to that, Estonian Air is pretty much a loc-cost airline, at least in their fare system. And they're not expensive anyways. And, most important, Tallinn is not such a big market. Estonia only counts 1.5M inhabitants, and has one of the lowest GDP rates in Europe.

However, there is still traffic growth to expect, as the Baltics are the fastest growing economy in Europe. KL for example, is planning a 2nd daily flight AMS-TLL, as stated in De Wolenridder. I wouldn't be surprised with more flights to Germany or Finland either. FR on a TMP-TLL for example.

I also expect more flights to Riga. As Latvia has a lot of links with Germany, more flights to Germany are to expect. LBC-RIX has been rumoured, I also expect a NRN-RIX when NRN becomes a base. And I hope for a U2 DTM-RIX.

Besides this, I expect many LCC-routes from western- to eastern-europe to be launched. In 2 years, people from eastern europe can work anywhere in the EU (they can't now yet), generating a need for cheap transportation between eastern europe and the west - the reason also for all the Wizzair and Ryanair flights between Germany and Poland. And many routes from countries like Hungary, Poland and the Czech republic to sunny destinations are likely.

Last, as Romania and Bulgaria will join the EU in 2007, more routes to this countries are expected too. Like vacation traffic from eastern europe to Varna.

I do not think FR will serve any airport in Estonia soon.
As to TLL-TMP I am not sure if there enough demand for it. Soder was trying to operate this route some year or two ago.
