Estonian Air to base an Embraer 170 at Birmingham Airport to be marketed by Air Charter Service‏

Air Charter Service - ACS - the leading aircraft charter specialist has agreed to market
Estonian Air’s Embraer 170 aircraft exclusively from January 2014, having identified a
gap in the UK market as airlines continue to trim charter capacity
Commercial Jets Director at ACS, Matt Purton, explained: "With a capacity of 76 seats
and a range of around 3 hours, we feel that the aircraft is very versatile and will be ideal
for sports teams, Oil and Gas clients and the meetings and incentives industry"
The aircraft is in an all economy plus configuration, with 31” pitch seats in a two by two
configuration. There is a lack of this kind of capability, in the UK market especially, and,
at the request of our client base, we have brought it in"

Purton continued, "We’ve been pleasantly surprised at the uptake from Tour Operators
looking for niche routes from regional airports to Mediterranean countries especially.
Also we’ve already seen some demand for ACMI - airline sub charter - coverage, all this
is in addition to our core charter business"

Mikael Wangdahl, the COO of Estonian Air commented: "We see a good opportunity to
utilise our surplus aircraft capacity in the UK’s market and we have had a very good,
longstanding cooperation with Air Charter Service"

The aircraft - which will be initially based at Birmingham Airport - 

can be chartered by contacting Air Charter Service
