City airport attracts Estonian

With the Embraer e-series regional jets now established as the carrier's front line aircraft, Estonian Air is to transfer its allegiance from Gatwick to London City Airport it was announced at ERA Dublin last week.  The operation remains single class with the current leased Boeing 737-500 returning to its owner.

The State-owned airline will suspend its London operation at the end of the summer season and re-starts 25 March 2013 with initially a Monday, Wednesday and Friday service, rising to six times weekly by 1 June (not Saturday).  Flight time will be slightly longer than the current 2hrs 55mins.  At Gatwick, Estonian Air competed with easyJet.  BTNews review of ERA will appear Monday 1 October. www.estonian-air.com
