6-Feb-2012 3:06 PM

Estonian Air stated (03-Feb-2012) it will lease four 76-seat Embraer 170 aircraft from Finnair this month, which will be used for replacing the existing Boeing aircraft and for growth. The carrier is also in talks with Embraer and leasing companies over the delivery schedule and conditions for eight more aircraft, which will be a mix of 88-seat E175s and 112-seat E190 models. The aircraft are scheduled to enter the fleet in 2013-2015. CEO Tero Taskila stated the Embraer aircraft “suit the company’s new strategy due to their efficiency, appropriate size and flying range". The aircraft will "enable the company to increase flight frequencies, open new destinations and to operate at least double daily services to main destinations in Europe". [more - original PR]
