The Romanian airline Blue Air has recently announced that direct flights from Glasgow to Bucharest will be one of the 42 new routes set in Glasgow Airport for 2016.
These flights will be operated from 17th December of 2015 and they will be offered twice a week (Thursday and Sunday). It is not possible to fly to Bucharest from any other Scottish airport, which means that it will be the first connecting link between the Romanian city and Scotland.
It is most probable that Bucharest is not the first city that comes to your mind when you are thinking about travelling around Europe; nevertheless, this city is a major discovery for all those that decide to visit. In the 30s, Bucharest was called ‘little Paris’ due to its tree-lined avenues and some great monuments that are very similar to the French capital city. Currently, Bucharest is the largest city in Romania and the main industrial, commercial and cultural centre of the country. Bucharest has over 2 million habitants, which makes it the tenth most populated city of Europe.
From Blue Air, a spokesperson stated: “Blue Air wishes to announce a new direct flight between Glasgow and Bucharest. Tickets are already available at prices starting from £26.55 so book your trips in advance! Flights will be operated from December 17, 2015, each Thursday and Sunday.”
In addition to Blue Air, Wizz Air—Europe’s third largest low cost airline—has also revealed its plans to launch direct flights between Glasgow and Bucharest. Consequently, when both companies are running their flights, there will be four flights per week from Glasgow to Bucharest (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday)
Blue Air flights from Glasgow to Bucharest are already available for booking through Air Glasgow, so now you’ll be sure to get the cheapest rates every time you book a flight.
