Finnair to Resume Helsinki-Tartu Flights from June 2

Finnair (model ATR72-500)

Finnair will resume its flights on the Helsinki-Tartu route from June 2.

The service was suspended since April 29 in order to implement a landing method that does not require GPS. This made it possible for some approaches to be based on radio signals transmitted from the ground.

According to Finnair, GPS interference has been on the rise since 2022, particularly around the Black Sea, Caspian Sea, the eastern Mediterranean, and in Kaliningrad, a Russian exclave. Estonian Foreign Minister, Margus Tsahkna, has attributed this interference to Russia, and has stated the intention to address the issue alongside NATO allies and the EU. Finnair indicated that two flights to Tartu have had to turn back due to GPS interference thus far.
