Airlines Nordica wins contract to serve Swedish domestic destinations
After Nextjet’s bankruptcy the Swedish aviation board had been seeking a partner to serve domestic destinations. The Estonian aviation company Nordica has won the contract commencing in September.
Regional Jet OÜ, subsidiary of Nordica, will be serving Swedish domestic routes between the cities of Stockholm, Gällivare and Arvidsjauri from 15 September 2018 to October 2019. The state-subsidized air links will be served by Nordica’s CRJ 900 jet. The Estonian aviation company won the contract provided by the Swedish aviation board.
In May 2018, when the Swedish local airline went bankrupt, services between Stockholm, Gällivare and Arvidsjauri had stopped. Nextjet had served national destinations as well as destinations in Finland and Latvia.
Due to the former subcontract for Nextjet, Nordica is well prepared to serve the Swedish destinations: “Back in 2016, we were a subcontractor for Nextjet on this route and we thus have a good overview of the expense base of the service we’ll be providing. I would call this a very positive event for the Estonian airline and we are totally satisfied with the agreement that has been reached,” Nordica’s marketing and communication director Toomas Uibo said.
The 100 percent state-owned Nordic Aviation Group was established with a resolution of the Estonian Government in September 2015 to guarantee flight connections to and from Estonia. In this time, Nordica has become a significant regional airline operating a fleet of 19 aircraft. Nordica employs 450 aviation specialists and delivers aviation services to Sweden, Denmark, Poland and the Netherlands. In November 2016 Nordica started a cooperation with LOT Polish Airlines involving a joint commercial platform and ticket sales system, as well as sharing codes.
