Blue Air: a year based at Liverpool
The carrier's eighth European base
Blue Air celebrated yesterday its first anniversary since opening the base at Liverpool "John Lennon Airport" (LJLA) 12 months ago.
Liverpool became carrier’s eighth European base in March 2017 with the basing of one of the airline’s 144 seat B-737/700 aircraft at "LJLA".
It also operate flights from the Romanian cities of Bucharest, Cluj and Bacau carrying a further 100,000 passengers over the past year on these routes too.
Its decision to base one of its aircraft at Liverpool had an immediate impact on the local economy too, with the airline creating 38 jobs for pilots, cabin crew and engineers.
The region’s travellers have been full of praise for the airline and their support has helped to encourage Blue Air to add more destinations from Liverpool, with flights due to start in June 2018 to Malaga and Palma.
