Blue Air, the first smart flying company with over 100 routes in Europe, operated the first flight from Glasgow to Iaşi on Saturday, June 17.
The new route will operate every Thursday and Saturday using a Boeing 737 aircraft. Blue Air currently operates the popular thrice-weekly service to Romanian capital Bucharest, which was introduced in December 2015.
Paul White, Business Development Manager at Glasgow Airport said: “This new Iaşi service from Blue Air is sure to be popular with both our business and leisure customers. As well as offering a key transport link to one of the most important political and economic centres in the province of Moldavia, this twice weekly service will also be a great link for ex-pats and those seeking a historical and cultured city break. We look forward to working with our airline partner Blue Air to ensure the success of the airline’s latest service at Glasgow Airport.”
Tudor Constantinescu, Chief Commercial Officer at Blue Air said: “Blue Air is excited to further grow its presence at Glasgow Airport, by introducing twice-weekly services from its Iasi operational base. This new route is aimed primarily at holiday-makers, considering the vast touristic potential of both Romania and Scotland. It will also be incredibly popular with the Romanian community in Glasgow and the surrounding areas. We look forward to making this route another successful story of Blue Air’s network.”
