Minister of Economic Affairs Juhan Parts said yesterday that Estonian Air is on the market, speaking on TV3+, a Russian language television network.
Speaking about the future of the company, Parts said that after SAS opted out of Estonian Air, the government had a choice of either keeping the national carrier or not, Äripäev reported.
Parts added that the best solution would be to find a partner. “I don't see an option that makes me happy and to be honest: Estonian Air is for sale, everyday,” Parts said.
The minister finished the interview by saying that his family is his number one priority but Estonian Air takes a close second.
