Mon Dec 06, 2004 11:51 am

KLM will start as of March 2005 daily round-trip to the Estonian capital Tallin, flight will be operated by a KLM Cityhopper, plane Fokker-70.

Depart AMS 9:50am, arrive TLL 1:10pm
Depart TLL 1:50pm, arrive AMS 3:20pm.

Its KLM´s third Baltic destination (Riga in Latvia, operated by KLM Cityhopper and Vilnius in Lithuania opperated by Lithuanian Airlines- codeshare with KLM).
Way to go KLM!
PS: the flight to TLL will be codeshare with AF.

Just a small correction: It is spelled Tallinn  Big grin

But code-share flights to Tallinn are little strange. OV (49% owned by SAS) has very strong cooperation with SAS and very many of their flights are codeshared with SK (and opposite, there are also some SK flights with OV numbers). The official OV bonusprogram is SAS Eurobonus. OV TLL-CDG flight is on the other hand codeshared with AF (making thus possible to earn Star bonuspoints on SkyTeam flight  Big grin.

Really does not make any sense to me...  Confused

Treg,
sorry to mispell your capital city, people always learn day by day.
The codesharing thing is very complicated, it´s a complete mess!

It makes perfect sense to me. KL is owned by the AF group hence you would codeshare on TLL-AMS (and in the mean time drive OV out of this market). Moreover, one can be be 100% confident that if TLL-AMS is becoming a succes and their are no contractual obligations between AF and OV one will see the end of the codeshare on OV by AF soon.

OV TLL-CDG flight is on the other hand codeshared with AF (making thus possible to earn Star bonuspoints on SkyTeam flight

As far as I know OV is the oeprator thus impossible to earn Star points on a Skyteam flight (when flying with the AF flightnumber one receives Skyteam points only)

Lj,

I think that even if the TLL-CDG flight's operated by AF, when you purchase a ticket with an OV flight number you qualify to get your OV points (Eurobonus).
