Blue Air adds second Liverpool route

ROMANIAN airline Blue Air has announced a second new route from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA), with flights to the city of Bacau to begin in March 2015.
The news comes just three months after Blue Air announced its inaugural three times weekly service to the Romanian capital Bucharest, which starts in December.
Situated in North East Romania in the historical region of Moldavia, in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, Bacau is one of Romania’s cultural centres with a state theatre, museums and a symphony orchestra.  Attractions include the famous churches of northern Moldavia with their colorful paintings, which have been listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Flights to Bacau will begin at the start of the airline’s summer schedule on March 31, operating twice weekly with departures at 00:40 on Wednesday and Sunday mornings. The airline will operate a 162 seat Boeing 737-400 on this route.
Mark Povall, director of air service development at Liverpool John Lennon Airport said: “The response to the launch of Blue Air’s flights to Bucharest has been very encouraging and the support shown by the region’s business community has undoubtedly contributed to the airline’s latest decision to already add further flights, before even starting their operations from here.
“This is an exciting time for the airline and we will continue to work closely to explore other opportunities to serve Liverpool from elsewhere across their network.”

Gheorghe Racaru, Blue Air general manager added: “Blue Air has been permanently developing by opening new routes, increasing the fleet or adding new services.

“After the launch of the direct flights from Liverpool to Bucharest, the positive response was overwhelming and since then, the requests for flights to Bacau have increased. After careful analysis of the market, we are pleased to announce Blue Air’s second route from Liverpool John Lennon Airport.”
