Estonian Air, the country's national carrier, folded after 24 years in operation. The company was founded in December 1, 1991.

The company inherited a dozen Antonov An-2 aircraft from Aeroflot's Estonian subsidiary and soon purchased Tu-134 and Jak-40-type planes. First Boeings were added to the fleet in 1995. It has also flown Fokker50, Saab 340A, Bombardier and Embraer planes.

CEOs of Estonia Air:

Anti Oidsalu 1991-1994
Toomas Peterson 1995-1996
Borge Thornbech 1996-2000
Jorn Eriksen 2000-2002

Borge Thornbech 2005-2007
Andrus Aljas 2008-2011
