Brussels Airport, 17 February 2011 - The Romanian low-cost carrier Blue Air announces the start of a direct service between Brussels Airport and Bacau as of the 30th of May. Flights will be carried out twice a week (on Mondays and Fridays) using a Boeing 737. Tickets can already be booked through the airline's on-line booking tool on www.blueairweb.com or through the travel agents.
Bacau is a totally new destination to be served from Brussels Airport. Its nearness to business centres such as Iasi and Chisinau (in Moldavia) make it an interesting destination for business travellers. Because of the UNESCO World heritage sites and the authenticity of the East-Romanian countryside Bacau attracts a growing number of leisure passengers. The Danube region was the special guest at the 53rd Holiday Fair in Brussels. The Danube flows through many countries including Romania and Moldavia. The Danube region with its many tourist attractions is rapidly gaining popularity among Belgian travellers.
Blue Air is not new to Brussels Airport: the airline has been operating services to Bucharest (Baneasa) and Constanta for a few years now.

Montenegro Airlines is to start a three weekly service to Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro. JetairFly is to launch a direct service to Tirana in Albania and to Pristina in Kosovo.
