The new service, by Blue Air, took off this week between Liverpool Airport (LJLA) to Cluj, in North West Romania.
The service will fly each Friday and Monday, departing LJLA at 11.05am.
The beautiful city of Cluj will make for an ideal long weekend for city break lovers, and with the convenient flight schedule passengers can choose from long weekends to mid-week breaks.
Cluj is the country’s second largest city – with a population of 330,000 – it boasts one of the most vibrant economies in Romania; making it an important market for business travellers too.
A city rich in culture, it gives off a relaxed yet bustling vibe. With its eclectic mix of bars, restaurants and nightlife there’s something for every taste. What’s more, it’s the ‘unofficial’ capital of the historical province of Transylvania – popular with fans of Count Dracula.
The Liverpool to Cluj service becomes Blue Air’s third service out of LJLA, who already fly to Bucharest and Bacau.
Speaking about the route inaugural flight, Blue Air’s Chief Commercial Officer, Tudor Constantinescu commented, “It is indeed a proud moment for us at Blue Air to launch our maiden international flight between Liverpool and Cluj-Napoca, a city in the heart of Transylvania. There is a strong demand in travel between Romania and the UK from the Romanian community, while visiting friends and relatives in Romania.
With the emerging IT industry and trade between the two countries, and especially in Cluj-Napoca, we are looking forward to playing an important role in supporting the ongoing economic growth and development of the second most populous city in Romania.”
