Blue Air adds Helsinki, Oslo and Munich to ever-growing network

Blue Air’s Iasi to Constanta, Florence and Glasgow

Iasi Airport

Iasi Airport baked this five-tiered cake to celebrate the start of Blue Air’s new routes to Glasgow, Florence, Constanta and Valencia (launched 4 June), while flights to Milan Bergamo and Munich have also begun. With these launches, Blue Air now serves 17 destinations from Iasi, of which four are domestic.

Blue Air Helsinki

Seen cutting the cake in Helsinki, one of three new airports to join Blue Air’s network this week, are: Vlad Cristescu, Senior Network Development Executive, Blue Air; Ville Haapasaari, Director of Helsinki Airport, Finavia; and Razvan Rotundu, Romanian Ambassador to Finland. Blue Air will connect Bucharest to Helsinki with three weekly flights.

Blue Air Glasgow

Glasgow Airport welcomed the inaugural Blue Air flight from Iasi on 17 June. For Blue Air this is its second route to Glasgow after Bucharest. Seen on the tarmac with the flight crew of the first Iasi service is Paul White, Business Development Manager, Glasgow Airport. Flights from Iasi will operate twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Saturdays).

  • Blue Air has strengthened its network this week by introducing three new airports to its schedule – Helsinki (HEL), Oslo Gardermoen (OSL) and Munich (MUC). “We are elated to introduce Helsinki, an economic powerhouse that supports a mix of both business and leisure traffic, to our fast-growing Bucharest network,” comments Vlad Cristescu, Senior Network Development Executive, Blue Air. The Scandinavian capitals will both be served from Bucharest (OTP) while the Bavarian gateway will see three times weekly flights from Iasi (IAS). What is significant is that of the 10 routes that have been launched by Blue Air this week, four are domestic connections from Constanta (CND), the carrier’s newest base. Only one of the 10 routes will face direct competition, with the link between Iasi and Milan Bergamo (BGY) going head-to-head with Wizz Air. The average weekly frequency of the new services is 2.3, while the average sector length is 1,199 kilometres.
