Estonian Air to link Växjö and Amsterdam

Agreement with airport valid a year from May 4

Sweden’s Växjö Småland Airport has signed a commercial agreement with Estonian Air to serve a route between Växjö and Amsterdam. The agreement is valid for one year starting May 4.

The Estonian flag carrier will operate the route with a 76-seater Embraer 170. According to the agreement, it will serve the route with eight flights a week.

“The agreement gives Estonian Air a very good possibility to utilise one of its two surplus aircraft capacity with low risk, and it is of course convenient to operate to Amsterdam since we do operate the same destination from Tallinn,” said Jan Palmér, CEO of Estonian Air, a former chief executive of Cimber Sterling.

Estonian Air’s fleet comprises seven aircraft: four Embraer 170 and three CRJ900 NextGen. It is currently serving a scheduled network with five aircraft to Stockholm, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Brussels, Oslo, Moscow, Munich, St Petersburg, Kiev, Vilnius and Trondheim.

One aircraft is based in Birmingham for charter flights, the other contracts on the European market in cooperation with Air Charter Service in London.
