Estonian PM leaves all options open on national airline


As reported, Estonian Air will not be offering its usual seasonal summer flights to Simferopol or Frankfurt, due, it says, to declining demand. But in connection with the transition to the summer schedules on March 29, it will be re-launching a number of other summer routes. At a government press conference on February 12, Estonian Prime Minister Andrus Ansip said, when answering a question from the national broadcasting company, that he thought it extremely important for Estonian Air to have a strategic partner. He estimated that the cooperation with SAS has been very good for the airline. It is possible, he continued, that to make up for the departure of SAS, the state could increase its stake in proportion with those of the other shareholders, or the state’s ownership in the national airline could grow significantly.
