Airlines of Estonia, Singapore Could Start Co-operation
24 October (BNS)
Singapore's Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew, who met with Estonia's Minister of Economy and Communications Juhan Parts in China, said the airline companies of the two small countries could start co-operation with assistance from the governments.
While Singapore Airlines does fly to Western Europe, it has no routes to Eastern Europe, Lui said. Parts stated that Tallinn is the EU capital closest to Asia and Estonia can make use of that. "We are in the process of building up our national airline company and we are looking for potential partners in Asia," he said, adding that regular flights between Tallinn and some city in Asia were possible.
Parts and Lui both contended that there are not enough air connections between Europe and Asia and this can be changed through bilateral efforts.
