The flight schedule of Estonia's state-owned airline Nordica was delayed due to the failure of two planes on Monday.

One of the planes was stuck in Munich due to a hydraulics failure, and the other, scheduled to fly from Paris to Tallinn yesterday, had to land in Copenhagen as a result of an on-board computer failure, Nordica’s chief of business development Sven Kukemelk told BNS.

Due to the failures, Nordica had to make changes to its Monday schedule. The company is trying to find as many replacement planes and flights as possible. Kukemelk expects the situation to get solved by Tuesday.

Nordica's fleet consists of five aircraft, two Bombardier CRJ-700, and three Bombardier CRJ-900.
