Nordica cancels flights because of sick pilots ({{commentsTotal}})


According to the website of Tallinn Airport, Nordica’s flights to and from Berlin and Vilnius on Tuesday were cancelled. The reason is that Nordica’s partner BMI does not have enough pilots to operate the flights.

Today’s outbound flights to Berlin (1:15 p.m.) and Vilnius (13:30 p.m.) were cancelled. The returning flights from the two cities back to Tallinn (out of Berlin at 5:25 p.m, out of Vilnius at 4:30 p.m.) are also cancelled.

All four routes are operated by the BMI/Air Adria platform Nordica uses.

“Today’s cancelled flights are due to two of our partner BMI’s pilots being ill,” Nordica spokeswoman Liis Veersalu explained to ERR’s online news. Veersalu said that they had heard of the problem too late to arrange for replacements.

Nordica confirms that the remainder of its flights today will happen as scheduled.

“BMI have promised to send us replacement captains to influence flight operations over the coming days as little as possible,” Nordica confirmed. They also said that all passengers of today’s cancelled routes had been offered alternative flights.

The cancellations force 230 passengers to change their travel plans.
