Next summer, Romanian airline Blue Air will start up its first flights to Copenhagen Airport from the Romanian capital of Bucharest.
From 2 June 2017, it will fly three times a week between the two capitals.
“Bucharest is an exciting destination both for business travellers and tourists. We can see in particular that there is a demand among Swedish travellers and that many of our travellers are currently flying indirectly. In future, they will be able to choose from several departures and reduce their travel time,” says Peter Krogsgaard, Copenhagen Airport’s chief commercial officer.
Tudor Constantinescu, Blue Air’s chief commercial officer, is delighted about the new route:
“We’ve had our eyes on the Danish market for some time and we’re now ready to begin services to one of Europe’s greatest capitals. With an extended catchment area, strong economy and vibrant scene, Copenhagen represents an exciting first Danish destination for us and we hope to expand at the airport with more routes over time. This is an important step in strengthening our position within the Nordic block,” says Tudor Constantinescu.
When Blue Air starts up the route between Bucharest and Copenhagen in 2017, it will fly on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Blue Air, established 12 years ago, has grown rapidly in the last few years and in 2015 carried more than 2 million passengers. This year, the company expects to top 3.2 million passengers.
