TALLINN - Bus transportation company SEBE and Estonia’s national airline Estonian Air have initiated collaboration in order to simplify arrival to the airport for those customers who live outside Tallinn, reports news agency LETA. The companies plan long-term cooperation. Firstly customers are offered the possibility to buy SEBE bus tickets from Estonian Air’s Web page, which will create a convenient alternative for moving between home and the airport instead of using a private car.
Later on, fast and fair transfer service between the bus terminal and airport, and also a permanent airport bus stop to the schedule of the Tallinn-Tartu Hourly Express, will be added.
After buying a flight ticket on Estonian Air’s Web page, customers will get a choice of SEBE bus trip destinations helping them to decide what way to come to the airport and to then buy suitable bus tickets.
Kuldar Vaarsi, SEBE’s CEO, welcomes the cooperation: “SEBE and Estonian Air are working together to make travel even more comfortable. Our common goal is to provide a comprehensive solution for trip planning and customers do not have to necessarily use a car to come to the airport.”
“Estonian Air wants to bring the national airline’s services closer to rural residents. The cooperation with SEBE allows to complement the full package of our travel planning e-services including travel insurance, car rent, hotel booking,” adds Gunnar Magi, Estonian Air’s Development Director.
SEBE has been operating on the long-distance bus market for 16 years under the trademarks Express Bus, Hourly Express and Youth Express. In 2011, SEBE will start city traffic operations in Tartu. The standard keywords of the offered bus service are: conveniently, timely and safely.
