TALLIN-BASED ESTONIAN AIR CONFIRMS ORDER FOR CRJ900s

Estonian Air has reaffirmed an order with Bombardier for three CRJ900s with options for two more. This new agreement replaces a firm order for three CRJ900s announced on March 10, 2008 as part of a purchase by SAS Scandinavian Airlines. SAS subsequently reduced its stake in Estonian Air from 49% to 10% on May 10 when the Estonian government effectively saved the airline by investing €21 million. The Estonian government has the right to buy SAS’ remaining 10% shareholding by 2014 and is expected to do so. “We require aircraft with less capacity than our mainline jets,” says Andrus Aljas, president and chief executive officer of Estonian Air. “The CRJ900 NextGen aircraft, which offer an excellent combination of performance, operating economics and passenger comfort, are ideally suited for our requirements and will be deployed as part of our fleet optimization program.”
