Nordica has joined the European Regions Airline Association (ERA) with the hope of opening up Estonia to economic and social development opportunities.
Launched in September 2015, the airline was known as Nordic Aviation Group before it rebranded as Nordica in March 2016.
Simon McNamara, the ERA’s director general, noted, “Nordica embodies the true spirit of ERA – an entrepreneurial company that is dedicated to providing connectivity to one of Europe’s more remote regions. I am delighted that the airline has chosen to join ERA to better exploit business opportunities and benefit from regulatory advice and support.”
Within two months of launching, Nordica was operating scheduled flight connections on eight routes from Tallinn to Amsterdam, Brussels, Stockholm, Oslo, Kiev, Trondheim and Vilnius. It initially flew under a commercial agreement with Adria Airways in co-operation with Nordic Aviation Group.
However, Nordica has since taken delivery of the first of its own aircraft – a Bombardier CRJ-700 in January 2016 – and will have six CRJs in operation from July this year. Many new routes including Munich, Berlin, Paris, Nice, Split, Vienna, Odessa and Rijeka have also been introduced.
Nordica also offers regional aircraft capacity to other airlines or communities which need connectivity.
