Liverpool’s newest airline, Blue Air, has offered passengers an escape from the January blues by announcing a brand-new route from Liverpool John Lennon Airport to Malaga.
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.
2017 was another successful year for Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) and the cause for a double celebration with the latest figures showing an increase in passenger throughput and Liverpool achieving one of the industry’s best scheduled flight punctuality records.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is gearing up once again for the traditional Christmas and New Year ‘getaway’, with around 120,000 passengers expected to pass through the Airport over the festive and New Year holiday period.
