On 3 October, Blue Air introduced flights between Turin and Pescara. The 608-kilometre sector will be flown thrice-weekly (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) facing no direct competition.
The second Italian connection launched by Blue Air this week was inaugurated on 1 October, a 721-kilometre connection between Turin and Naples, with the latter airport celebrating with not one, but two cakes. The city pair will face direct competition from Alitalia.
Iasi Airport celebrated with this three-tiered Romanian flag-themed cake the start of Blue Air’s new triangular domestic route that will operate Iasi – Cluj-Napoca – Timisoara – Iasi. The first non-capital city Romanian domestic links, launched on 1 October, will be flown daily.
- Blue Air further enhanced its route network with the introduction of new domestic links in Italy and Romania. The significance of Blue Air’s new route in its home nation is important as it is currently the only non-capital city domestic connection in Romania. On 1 October the airline inaugurated an Iasi (IAS) – Cluj-Napoca (CLJ) – Timisoara (TSR) link, a routing that will be operated daily on the carrier’s 737-500 fleet according to OAG schedules. On the same day the airline introduced a new Italian domestic link from Turin (TRN), a 721-kilometre sector to Naples (NAP). This is the only one of the five new routes launched by Blue Air this week that will face direct competition. Two days later the airline also launched a second domestic route from its Italian base, a 608-kilometre pairing with Pescara (PSR). The average sector length of the five new sectors is 469 kilometres. See how Iasi, Turin and Pescara airports FTWAs compare to others from around the world.
