On 2 May, Constanta Airport (also known as Mihail Kogălniceanu International Airport) marked the start of Blue Air’s twice-weekly departures to Milan/Bergamo. This is the LCC’s third route to the Italian airport as it already flies from Bucharest and Bacau.
- Blue Air started its third route to Milan/Bergamo (BGY) on 2 May, with the addition of twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Saturdays) flights from Constanta (CND) in Romania. The 1,484-kilometre sector from the oldest still populated city in Romania will be served by the Romanian LCC’s 162-seat 737-400s. No other airline flies between these two points, but Blue Air is also operating to Milan/Bergamo with five weekly flights from Bucharest and thrice-weekly departures from Bacau. Constanta Airport’s only other scheduled service is currently to Istanbul with Turkish Airlines, though Wizz Air will start London Luton services from mid-June. According to anna.aero’s archives Blue Air also operated from Constanta to Brussels for around two months in the summer of 2008.
