Estonian Air’s switch to Embraer is causing problems
Estonian Air’s sudden switch from ordering Bombardier aircraft to Embraer may not proceed as smoothly as it had hoped. The Canadian aircraft manufacturer, which had been supplying aircraft to the Estonian national carrier, is now claiming substantial damages from the airline for the cancellation of its order for five new planes. The dispute has gone to a Canadian court, according to a source in Estonian Air.
On top of that, Bombardier also wants to claim damages from the Estonian state, as it holds the government responsible for the cancellation.
