The national carrier Estonian Air reached another historic high mark in June, for the first time managing to serve over 100,000 passengers in a single month.

"This is an all-time record," said Rauno Parras, the company's chief communications officer. 

The passenger count is close to double the 58,000 registered in the same month last year. In addition, the share of seats occupied on flights this month stood at 78 percent, whereas a year ago the figure stood at 66 percent, the company said in a statement. 

The company, which has ended every year since 2005 in losses, replaced its management last year and started operating under a new strategy.

Results have so far not shown up on its yearly balance sheet, however. The company finished 2011 in the red by 17.3 million euros, the largest loss in its history.
