“Estonian Air team is extremely honoured to have made valuable contribution in development of Estonian tourism and economy over 24 years. During last year our airline has done a big turnaround and with more capacity provider contracts we proved that Estonian Air can become a sustainable and profitable Regional Airline. I would like to thank all Estonian Air employees, customers and partners for making it happen. Nevertheless, the European competition authorities deemed our state aid violating the rules,“ said Jan Palmer, the CEO of Estonian Air.
