All Air Lituanica flights are currently being operated by Estonian Air‘s (Talinn) Embraer 170s but this relationship seems to be unravelling. Estonian Air has cancelled the contract with Air Lituanica and issued this statement:

As part of winding down flight operations in Lithuania connected to the termination of its contractual relationship with Vilnius-based Air Lituanica, Estonian Air has decided to service the Vilnius – Berlin route only through December 15, 2013 and Vilnius – Amsterdam through January 6, 2014.

“After Estonian Air was forced to terminate its contractual relationship with Air Lituanica due to repeated breaches by Air Lituanica, we have no intentions to serve these routes independently in long term. We are doing everything to fulfill our obligations to ticket holders and minimize any interruptions related to their travel plans,“ said Jan Palmér, the CEO of Estonian Air.

Only Estonian Air tickets (with number 960 – XXXXXXXXX) and partner airline tickets, such as KLM, Delta, Hahn Air, are be accepted on Estonian Air flights.

Estonian Air flight tickets on Vilnius-Berlin flights after December 15, 2013 and on Vilnius – Amsterdam flights after January 6, 2014 will be refunded.

Who will replace Estonian Air? Can Air Lituanica survive this cancellation?
