Blue Air and Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) have celebrated the airline’s inaugural flight from Bucharest with a traditional arch of water aircraft ‘baptism’ carried out by the Airport’s Emergency Response Service to welcome the arrival of the Romanian airline’s first flight to Liverpool.
Blue Air’s senior representatives and guests from the region’s business and tourism community on the inaugural flight received tourist information about the city when they landed.
“We are particularly happy to see our new route starting today as fruit of a joint collaboration with LJLA. Business travellers and tourists will enjoy the benefit and comfort of a direct connection linking North West England with Romania,” explained Blue Air’s CCO, Tudor Constantinescu. “Shortening the travel time from Liverpool to Bucharest and later to Bacau creates in our view the premises of future economic, social and cultural cooperation and development to the benefit of both regions.”
Blue Air’s new flights from LJLA to Bucharest depart on Monday at 10:00 and at 17:45 on Wednesdays and Fridays. Blue Air announced in October that it will also commence a twice weekly service from Liverpool to Bacau in North East Romania from the end of March 2015.
