Connecting flight at Tallinn airport

I’m traveling from Munich to Kiev with a 30 min layover in Tallinn airport and just wondering if it takes long getting through the airport security before changing planes ? Both flights are with LOT airlines and was a direct booking on their app which directed me this route sohoping there’s no issues with this short layover

Why would you go through security in this case? You just come off the first plane and head to the gate of the second one. The airport is really small, you cannot spend more than 5 mins walking from one gate to any other. If you mean border control instead of security, this should't also take long, there are not many flights out of Schengen from Tallinn.

No security on this connection as Munich is a EU/EEA airport, so you will clear security there.

Passport control will be done just before the gates (just follow signs for transfer/transit and find a screen with gate numbers for your next flight) - just a quick scan of your passport. 30 minutes isn't much, but will be doable as long as the first flight is on time - if the first flight is delayed then LOT/Nordica is responsible for getting you to your destination on the next available flight with seats.

The flights might be on Nordica aircraft (Nordica is Estonias quite new flag carrier - owned partly by LOT), but most (if not all) Nordica flights carry LOT flight numbers - and many of the flights are operated by LOT aircrafts.
