While the private airline Avies is grounded and its license suspended, Estonia’s state-owned carrier Nordica considers going for the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications’ new tender to find a carrier to operate the routes to the Estonian islands.

"We are interested, but will definitely wait for the state to present its terms and expectations. Since the route is regionally important and takes place based on dotation, it is definitely one additional reason for taking part in the tender and start flying on the route," CEO of Nordica Jaan Tamm told the Baltic News Service on Tuesday.

According to Tamm, one of Nordica's business strategies is operating flights as a subcontractor as well as operating shorter routes. "So far we have done these abroad, but it doesn't necessarily have to be that way. We can also do it at home," Tamm added.

At present Nordica didn't have the aircraft necessary to operate these flights, but could rent them, Tamm said.

Spokesman for the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications Mihkel Loide told the BNS that the tender to find an operator for flights between the mainland and the islands of Saaremaa and Hiiumaa would be announced in the coming days.

The Civil Aviation Administration suspended the air operator's certificate of the bankrupt carrier Avies on Friday. The airline is not allowed to provide aviation services until the reasons for the suspension of the license have been eliminated.
