Estonian Air could take position at Vilnius Airport2009-01-23
After the operating licence of the Lithuanian airline flyLAL was revoked, a gaping hole appeared in the local aviation market. The hole could now be filled by Estonian Air. Transport Minister Eligijus Masiulis has met representatives of SAS, which has a 49 percent stake in Estonian Air, to discuss options for restoring traffic on certain routes between Vilnius Airport and the rest of Europe. Although the minister did not officially agree anything with SAS, it was agreed that getting Estonian Air to have more of a role at VNO is one of the options. The Estonian carrier’s press spokesperson, Ilona Eskelinen, did not want to confirm this option, but she then confirmed that the enterprise was indeed looking towards the Lithuanian market.
