Nordic Aviation to service its first own flight in January ({{commentsTotal}})


The new Estonian national airline Nordic Aviation Group will start using its own aircraft and crew in mid-January, CEO Erki Sakkov said.

Since its launch over a month ago, the company has organized more than 1,100 flights for 36,000 customers. It also has around 65,000 bookings to date.

The first few weeks have been difficult, Sakkov admitted to ERR radio news, but the airline is slowly beginning to stand on its own feet, despite unfavorable market condition.

The company aims to open more direct links to and from Tallinn. A route to Munich, the first to Germany for the airline, was opened last week.

Nordic Aviation Group currently flies to 10 destinations, in cooperation with Slovenia's Adria Airways.

The first flight with its own aircraft and an Estonian crew is scheduled for January 15.
