‘We have doubled our passenger traffic every year since starting our operations,’ said Gheorghe Racaru, general manager of Blue Air. ‘Looking toward the future, the next-generation 737-800 is the most capable airplane on the market with a proven and impressive track record. It is the right airplane for our forecasted growth in this region.’
Blue Air, Romania’s first low-cost airline, started operations in December 2004 and operates from Bucharest’s Banaeasa International airport, flying to European destinations. The new orders will build on their all-Boeing fleet of five 737 Classics.
