Romanian airline Blue Air yesterday celebrated the maiden flight on its new service between Hamburg and Bucharest. There are now two flights per week, on Tuesday and Friday, from Hamburg to the Romanian capital.
The service represents two premieres at once for Hamburg Airport. First, Blue Air is a brand new airline for Hamburg. Second, this is another new eastern European destination for the airport's route network.
“We very much welcome Blue Air's commitment to Hamburg Airport”, says Michael Eggenschwiler, CEO of Hamburg Airport. “The new route offers enormous potential. Bucharest was number 1 on our wishlist of European destinations for a reason. I am very pleased that we can now close this gap and increase the variety of our route network.”
“We are happy to launch our third destination in Germany – with two weekly flights between Bucharest and Hamburg. This new connection between Germany and Romania is of immense importance, especially in light of the rapid development of the high-tech industry and IT sector. We are happy to serve Hamburg with our experience and customer service and are looking forward to a strong and successful partnership with our new German Gateway“, says Tudor Constantinescu, Chief Commercial Officer of Blue Air.
Blue Air will be flying Boeing 737 aircraft on the route, bringing passengers from Hamburg to the Romanian capital in less than three hours. Fares start at €34,95 one way (including taxes and charges, limited availability). Seats on the new route are available for booking at www.blueairweb.com.
