Liverpool John Lennon Airport has announced a new winter route to the Romanian capital of Bucharest.
Romanian airline Blue Air will begin a three-times-weekly service from Liverpool Airport from December 15.
The flights will depart on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and fares are expected to start from about £26 one way, excluding taxes and charges.
Mark Povall, director of air service development at Liverpool John Lennon Airport said: “It is great to be able to welcome a new operator to the airport and particularly pleasing to see the commencement of this important route after having worked closely with the Romanian Consulate and the recent Romania Gateway 2018 initiative.
“By working locally with these partners, we have been able to demonstrate to Blue Air a real desire for this service from Liverpool.”
Gheorghe Racaru, Blue Air general manager, added: “Since its first flight, almost 10 years ago, Blue Air has been permanently developing, and this meant new routes, fleet increase or new services that would offer passengers an extremely pleasant experience on board of our aircraft.
“The Blue Air team is permanently trying to find smart solutions in order to provide its clients with multiple travelling options which would meet their demands.
“Making this happen could only be possible with the help of our trustworthy partners and, for this project, I would like to welcome the support and openness of the Liverpool John Lennon Airport representatives.
“In any business, trust and good cooperation among the parties involved is essential in order to obtain great outcomes and that is why I am certain that this new route will be a true success.”
