Blue Air is a low-cost airline based in Bucharest, Romania. It started operations in December 2004 and operates services to European destinations. Its main base is Aurel Vlaicu International Airport, Bucharest's smaller airport, also known as Bucharest BăneasaFlight International 27 March 2007] .

Destinations

At its founding, it also operated a domestic Bucharest-Timişoara flight, though this was discontinued in March 2005 due to low demand and competition from TAROM as well as rail travel. Blue Air began domestic flights to Cluj Napoca International Airport from Bucharest on 29 October 2006, operated with a Boeing 737. The newest Blue Air destination is Malaga in Spain. Now in 2008 Blue Air operates scheduled flights to the following destinations:- Italy: Turin(Cuneo), Venice(Treviso), Verona(Villafranca),Bologna(Marconi) and Rome(Fiumicino)- Spain: Madrid(Barajas), Valencia(Manises), Barcelona(El Prat), Malaga- France: Paris(Beauvis), Lyon(St. Exupery)- Germany: Cologne(Bonn), Stuttgart, Berlin(Schonefeld)- Cyprus: Larnaka - Great Britain: London(Stansted)Usual charter destinations flown by Blue Air are: - Greece: Rhodos, Iraklion and Corfu- Turkey: Bodrum and AntalyaThe company was one of the cheapest air carrier as of November 2006 to service Bucharest and other Romanian cities (until other air carriers like Wizz Air, Germanwings, MyAir or Easy Jet started to operate in Romania). It frequently offers deals on well-traveled routes whereby one can purchase tickets to major European cities in a fairly open window of time for only 1 or 2 euros plus tax. Blue Air offers free tickets from Cluj to Bucharest and back if one purchases a roundtrip ticket from Bucharest to any other city outside of Romania, giving those from Cluj the same destinations at the same price as those from the capital.

Because of the competition Blue Air met at Cluj Napoca International Airport it decided to end all their services from this airport. Competition came from TAROM (Bucharest, Madrid and Barcelona) and Wizz Air (Barcelona) on the Spain flights.
