Liverpool Airport was delighted to see Romanian airline, Blue Air, take its inaugural flight to Bucharest this week.
The Blue Air service is the North West’s only direct scheduled service to the Romanian capital.
Celebrations for the inaugural flight included a traditional arch of water, the aircraft’s ‘baptism’.
The flights between Liverpool and Bucharest will fly three times a week, on Mondays departing at 10am, and on Wednesdays and Fridays, departing at 5.45pm.
Speaking about the exciting event, the airport’s CEO, Andrew Cornish, said, “Today’s celebrations here at the Airport are hopefully just the start of a great relationship between Blue Air and ourselves. It’s also good that business and tourism stakeholders from across the region attended to welcome Blue Air to Liverpool and demonstrate to the airline the region’s support for this new route.”?
