Blue Air, the largest Romanian airline, had carried over 5.06 million passengers in 2017 – which is 70% more than in 2016. The airline more than doubled its activity compared to 2015, when it carried some 2 million passengers. The fast increase in the number of passengers was determined by the higher number of internal routes, as well as higher frequencies. Blue Air also launched direct connections between the seaside city of Constanta and some big cities in Romania.
“We managed to have a record number of regular routes, 104, and over 700 charter flights. Opening 33 new routes in 2017 was received very well by our passengers,” commented Blue Air General Manager Gheorghe Racaru.
Headquartered in Bucharest at Henri Coandă International Airport, Blue Air offers flights to over 100 destinations across Europe and the Middle East, including Athens, Barcelona, London, Lisbon, Madrid, Paris, Rome, and Tel Aviv.
