PM: “We don’t have a good plan A, B, C, D or E”
Andrus Ansip, Estonia’s prime minister, says the state does not have a “good plan” to rescue the struggling, debt-riddled national carrier. “At present we don’t have a good plan A. This means we also don’t have good plans B, C, D or E,” he admitted during a session of the country’s parliament.
“Estonian Air has never been a very profitable company. The airline has been saved with injections of capital and loans throughout its entire existence. Problems have always persisted and the main reason stems from the size of our nation.”
Ansip refused to place the entire blame for the airline’s difficulties on management mistakes.
