The European Regions Airline Association (ERA) has welcomed Estonian Air as a new airline member of the Association.
Established in December 1991, Estonian Air is 90% owned by the Estonian State and 10% by the SAS Group. The national carrier flies nonstop from Tallinn to 24 destinations in the CIS, Scandinavia and in Europe and is the biggest operator from Tallinn Airport. It operates a fleet of two Boeing 737s, two CRJ900 NextGens and two Saab 340s. In December 2011, the airline will add its third CRJ900 to its fleet.
“Estonian Air is going through a significant transformation. ERA’s expertise on developments in the regional industry will be an important asset for us,” commented Tero Taskila, CEO of Estonian Air. “In addition, we can draw support and knowledge from the member airlines when it comes to operating new generation regional aircraft. ERA’s member airlines have proven to show innovation and resilience in different economic environments,” added Taskila.
