Airlines Nordica offers connection flights to Star Alliance hubs
State-owned Estonian carrier Nordica announces new flights to Copenhagen and additional flights from Groningen Airport.
Nordica has announced to connect its hub Tallinn with the Danish capital Copenhagen, beginning on April 27, 2017. The carrier will offer two daily flights with connections to the long-haul network of SAS Scandinavian Airlines. Passengers can book connection flights to US cities like New York, Boston and Chicago and Asian destinations, including Beijing, Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
In addition to the flights from Tallinn to Copenhagen, Nordica connects the Danish capital with Groningen since September 2017. Media reports, the virtual carrier plans to open a new base with one Bombardier CRJ700 in the Dutch city and offer daily flights to Brussels and Munich in March 2017. Both cities are hubs for the Star Alliance airlines Lufthansa and Brussels Airlines.
Chairman of the Management Board of Nordica Jaan Tamm stated: “We already operate a wide range of flights out of Copenhagen for SAS as well as charter flights for Dutch and Swedish local governments, so launching a Tallinn-Copenhagen route forms a natural part of our development. We want to find as many ways as we can to link Estonia even more closely to the rest of the world, since it’s beneficial to our economy.”
Nordica was founded in 2015 as a virtual carrier. From 2015 to 2016 the company cooperated with Slovenian Adria Airways, which operated most of the flights for Nordica. In November 2016 Nordica entered into a strategic partnership with LOT Polish Airlines. As member LOT owns 49% of the shares of Nordica, most of Nordica’s flights use a LOT flight code. The new connection flights are possible as LOT, SAS Scandinavian Airlines and the Lufthansa Group are members of Star Alliance. Nordica’s subsidiary Regional Jet is already in a partnership with SAS Scandinavian Airlines, operating four ATR72-600 on regional routes from Copenhagen.
Nordica and its subsidiary Regional Jet operate a fleet of 5 ATR72-600, 2 Bombardier CRJ700 and 8 CRJ900.
