The carrier will offer three weekly flights between the two capital cities.

  • Blue Air has expanded its presence at four of its hubs this week, starting a total of eight new routes to destinations in Denmark, France, Germany, Portugal, Romania and Spain. Included among the new routes was a link between Bucharest (OTP) and Bordeaux (BOD), the newest airport to join the Romanian carrier’s network. Commenting on the arrival of Blue Air, Pascal Personne, Chairman of the Board, Bordeaux Airport, said: “Blue Air is the eleventh low-cost airline to join our platform, which further contributes to our development strategy for Eastern Europe.” Of the eight routes launched this week, only one, between Bucharest and Copenhagen (CPH), faces direct competition, with the route already served by SAS twice-weekly. The average weekly frequency of the eight routes is 2.4 and the average sector length is 1,733-kilometres. See how Copenhagen Airport’s water arch salute compares with others from around the world this week.
