With the cessation of operations of Estonian Air, the Estonian government has created a new company, Nordic Aviation Group, to ensure a continuation of flight connections between Estonia and the rest of the world.
Adria Airways will be introducing scheduled services from Tallinn in conjunction with Nordic Aviation Group from 8 November 2015. In the initial phase, flights will be operated by partner airlines BMI, Carpatair, Next Jet and Trade Air. During this period the Adria Flight Career Centre will retrain additional crew members in accordance with Adria Airways protocols. This period will also see the incorporation of three CRJ900 and two CRJ700 aircraft that were previously part of the Estonian Air fleet. The project is expected to run for between 12 and 18 months.
Adria Airways will also provide Nordic Aviation Group with full commercial and operational support and will operate all flights using its own aircraft or leased aircraft. The key aim of this project for Adria Airways is the commercial effect of flying in conjunction with Nordic Aviation Group, as well as a long-term alliance in the regional carrier sector and a search for synergies, which is the key to the success and survival of all regional airlines in Europe.
