As a result of an international competition carried out by Lufthansa Consulting, OÜ Transpordi Varahaldus (TVH) is to rent three Bombardier CRJ-900NG passenger planes to Estonian airline AS Nordic Aviation Group (Nordica) for a duration of thirteen years.

Ergo Blumfeldt, TVH Management Board Member, says that two tenders were received in the lease competition, of which Nordica’s tender was deemed to be the best. “The lease agreements last for 13 years,” he added. The European Commission has been informed of the lease agreements.

TVH had the aircraft, which were previously used by Estonian Air and returned to their owner upon expiry of the lease agreements, painted white at Airbourne Colours in England to be presented to the new lessee. The aircraft have undergone required maintenance and now are parking at Tallinn Airport. CRJ-900NG type aircraft are manufactured by Bombardier in Canada, they are 88-seaters, and their estimated useful life is 25-30 years.
