Record number of people flew to Hiiumaa in 2022

 

In 2022, a record number of 11,849 passengers travelled between Tallinn and Hiiumaa’s capital of Kärdla by plane. This breaks the previous record of 10,946 set in 2019.

The most popular month to travel to Estonia’s second-largest island was July, when 1,448 passengers travelled on the twice-daily service. The quietest month of the year came in January when 630 passengers used the flight connection.

During 2022, the route carried an average of 987 passengers per month. This is an increase of more than 50 per cent on the monthly average of 630 recorded just seven years ago in 2015. This increase coming in part due to a larger plane serving the route and a precision landing system at the airport, which has reduced cancellations on the route from about 40 per year down to 10-20.
