AirBaltic decision gives hope to Estonian Air, says PM

Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Roivas has praised plans to offer state aid for Latvia's national airline and hopes the same aid could come to the rescue for Estonian Air.

The Prime Minister's comments come after it was revealed up to ten investors have have taken interest in the Latvian national airline AirBaltic.

The European Commission previously said plans to offer state support for AirBaltic were in line with European standards after accusations surfaced that state aid had not been granted lawfully.

Roivas said that the ruling on the Latvian airline gave more hope to Estonian Air.

“As a regular person as well as the prime minister, I hope that Estonian Air will continue operating flights here,” added Roivas.

The number of passengers who use AirBaltic has declined this year, whilst the number of passengers at Riga International Airport is on the same level as last year.
