Nordica, the national airline of Estonia, is closing three of its routes. Flights to Oslo, St. Petersburg and Amsterdam are no longer profitable enough to maintain, according to the CEO of Nordica Hannes Saarpuu.
The owner of Nordica is the Estonian government and is founded on 25 September 2015 following the liquidation of the former national carrier Estonian Air. The first flight of Nordica left at 8:58 am from Tallinn to Amsterdam on 8 November 2015. The first flight with a full Estonian crew was on January 20 at 18.10 and was also between Tallinn and Amsterdam.
Nordica has announced to cancel the scheduled flights because it is no longer profitable. The company wants to focus on flights that are profitable, such as the flight between Tallinn and Brussels and seven other destinations.
On 13 January 2019, the last flight will be between Tallinn and the other three destinations. Nordica will contact passengers who already bought flight tickets for the three dropped destinations. They will offer them alternative solutions, so nobody needs to worry about their tickets.
