Romanian airline Blue Air is to begin a three times weekly scheduled service between Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Bucharest on 15 December 2014.
Flights will be operated by the airline’s 162 seat Boeing 737-400s on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays through to the end of the winter season, with flights departing at 09:45 on Mondays and 18:00 on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Blue Air has been operating for almost 10 years with a network of services from Romania to destinations across Europe, offering high levels of comfort and customer service with great value for money air fares.
Blue Air general manager Gheorghe Racaru declared, “Since its first flight, almost ten years ago, Blue Air has been permanently developing, and this meant new routes, fleet increase or new services that would offer passengers an extremely pleasant experience on board of our aircraft. It is my pleasure to announce that tickets for a new route Liverpool–Bucharest and return are available, a destination which joins the other 26 routes already in place.”
Mark Povall, director of air service development for Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented, “It is great to be able to welcome a new operator to the airport and particularly pleasing to see the commencement of this important route after having worked closely with the Romanian Consulate and the recent Romania Gateway 2018 initiative. By working locally with these partners, we have been able to demonstrate to Blue Air a real desire for this service from Liverpool.”
