Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) has celebrated the start of Blue Air’s third route from Liverpool with the airline’s inaugural service to Cluj, Romania’s second largest city with one of the most vibrant economies in Romania and a population of around 330,000.
Blue Air operates flights to Cluj on Fridays and Mondays departing at 11:05. This route follows the successful introduction of services to Bucharest and Bacau from Liverpool in 2014. For the coming winter season, Blue Air will operate a fourth weekly service to Bucharest from Liverpool whilst Bacau will operate though the winter season.
Blue Air’s chief commercial officer Tudor Constantinescu commented, “It is indeed a proud moment for us at Blue Air to launch our maiden international flight between Liverpool and Cluj-Napoca. There is a strong demand in travel between Romania and the UK from the Romanian community, while visiting friends and relatives in Romania.
“With the emerging IT industry and trade between the two countries, and especially in Cluj-Napoca, we are looking forward to playing an important role in supporting the ongoing economic growth and development of the second most populous city in Romania,” added Constantinescu.
