Romanian carrier Blue Air is adding a third daily flight between Bucharest Otopeni and London Heathrow from 14th April 2022.
The new rotation will be an evening flight arriving at London Heathrow at 19:35 and departing for Bucharest at 20:25.
Like the current rotations, it will be operated by a Boeing 737 Max 8.
Krassimir Tanev, Chief Commercial Officer Blue Air said: “We are incredibly proud to be able to upgrade our service between London-Heathrow and Bucharest offering a better travel experience with our new game-changing Boeing 737 – MAX now 3 times daily service.
“We welcome the UK government initiative to scrap the majority of Covid related restrictions by the end of this month, particularly boosting the demand for Easter travel and we are responding to this by reinforcing our London-Heathrow – Bucharest to 3 x Daily effective 14 April adding additional late evening frequency to address the spike in searches on this popular route between UK and Romania.
“We are particularly pleased that only one year after we have launched our second daily service between London-Heathrow and Bucharest – we have managed to ramp up our operations and deliver an amazing product to the benefit of our customers“
Blue Air commenced services to London Heathrow in December 2020 and demand has increased. Its presence at Heathrow was seen as a bit of a coup for the airline being an Ultra-Low-Cost airline.
The airline operates more flights to London Heathrow than Romanian national airline, TAROM.
