This Estonian-based airline website was started in early 1999. In 1996, the country of Estonia decided to privatize its publically-held airline and 66 percent of the shares were sold. These efforts paid off when the Danish airline Maersk Air, in cooperation with the Estonian-based investment firm AS Cresco bought the firm, resulting in 34% ownership of Estonian state, 17% in AS Cresco and 49% in Maersk Air. In September of 2003, the SAS Group and the Danish airline Maersk Air and Estonian Air signed a 49% share purchase and sale agreement, resulting in the Estonian Air firm becoming the owner of AS Cresco.
