Liverpool John Lennon Airport welcomed its newest airline today with the arrival from Reykjavik of the first flight to and from Liverpool by new Icelandic low-cost carrier PLAY.
Management at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) last night celebrated the start of Blue Air’s second service from Liverpool with the airline’s first departure to the city of Bacau in North East Romania.
This latest service comes just over three months after Blue Air commenced operations at LJLA, with their three times weekly flights to the Romanian capital Bucharest, which started in December 2014.
Flights to Bacau operate twice weekly and take Blue Air’s operation at Liverpool to five departing flights per week.
Situated in the historical region of Moldavia, at the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, Bacau is one of Romania’s cultural centres with a state theatre, museums and a symphony orchestra. Attractions include the famous churches of northern Moldavia with their colourful paintings, which have been listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Staff marked the occasion at the Airport in the usual way with a special celebratory cake.
Lufthansa’s new service to Frankfurt takes off from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, bringing the return of global connectivity for the city for the first time in over 10 years.
A new service by PLAY airlines will connect Liverpool with Reykjavík and four eastern US cities.
