Blue Air Romania Expands Fleet

Sun Jan 15, 2017 10:06 am

Blue Air to add six ex-Transaero Boeing 737-800s. The first is about to be delivered.

Meanwhile, some Boeing 737-300s previously operated by Lufthansa are being considered to replace the -500s. Replacing a 25 year old aircraft with another 25 year old aircraft?

I am curious to fly this carrier.

They have been expanding lately in Western Europe in routes that do not remotely touch Eastern Europe. For instance, London Luton-Turin or Liverpool-Alicante.

So am I. They're still small, but growing and unlike Wizzair they do dare to expand into western Europe. Lately I came across a Turin - Palma de Mallorca flight on them. It sure is an airline to keep my eyes on.

Nice to see that some of the ol´ bobbies will find a new home. I guess they are in a pretty good shape after all and replacing 500s with 300s makes sense for expansion and adding seats.

I flew two flights with them on -400s (CTA-OTP and OTP-LYS). Very pleasant and extremely cheap. I hope they do well.

I can see them potentially saving some of WS and/or SK's 737-600's from an early death; well maintained, more modern and dirt cheap.

Airports flown to/from: DUB, JFK, LGW, LHR, LIS, LTN, PDL, SEN and STN.
Airlines flown with: AA, BA, BD, BE, EI, and FR.
Next flights: W9 LTN - SVG - LTN
Home Airport: LHR
