At the be­gin­ning of May, the num­ber pas­sen­gers trav­el­ling on the St Peters­burg – Tallinn and St Peters­burg – Riga routes has in­creased by 18% when com­pared to the same pe­riod of 2017. Half of those pas­sen­gers trav­elled from St Peters­burg to Tallinn, ac­cord­ing to data from Lux Ex­press.

The largest num­ber of Rus­sian tourists (19%) ar­rived in Riga from St Peters­burg. 14% more Rus­sian tourists trav­elled to Helsinki this year than the year be­fore.

«We no­ticed in­creased de­mand for travel in early spring. Be­cause of that, we de­cided to add 11 ad­di­tional runs from St Peters­burg to Helsinki, Tallinn and Riga,» says Lux Ex­press rep­re­sen­ta­tive Raits Rem­mels. He notes that trips to Latvia’s cap­i­tal are the most ex­pen­sive for Rus­sian tourists. In re­sponse to grow­ing de­mand, Lux Ex­press has de­cided to in­crease the num­ber of runs be­tween St Peters­burg and Tallinn from June on­ward.
