Hi, been a reader for some time, now joined in. The Romanian news agency mediafax reported yesterday that BBU based low cost carrier Blueair is in talks to acquire 10 more airframes (737-800 and 737-900) from Boeing. They say Blueair signed a contract in 2008 for 5 + 5 options and this is a new order while keeping the options.

Good news that seemed so commonplace some time ago

They've taken a few from FR recently; I wonder if we will see some more coming from DUB as well.

By the way, what is the position with regard to Banaesa Airport; I thought it was to be closed? Will Blue Air move its ops to OTP then - and how will that affect its costs?

I don't think Bucharest Baneasa airport will be closed in the next future, let's say till 2011 (assertion backed by recent works done). OTP may simply not be able to take the 2mil + air traffic at once, without the upgrades are planned for it.
Due to the location in a prime area, there will always be rumours about its closure; however, with the recent real estate downturn, we don't talk anymore about that.
There are also permanent rumours about the much needed third airport, either west and south of Bucharest, but, at least until a firm decision is made, I think BBU will stay open.
By the way, it turns 100 y.o this year! It is a logistic nightmare, but is a full-time working centenarian with a late 40's design terminal  Smile

I remember folks chiding Boeing for even considering the 737-900ER...that it was OH so little, OH so late. And now it has acquired 238 orders! That's a HUGE number for a derivative. The initial 737-900 only garnished 52 orders (ok, probably more that were converted to 900ER, but still) and the business jet only added another 9 to the order book.

So the direct competitor the A321-200 has 739 orders...at least with the 900ER, Boeing now has a dog in this fight.

learning never stops.
