“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” – Saint Augustine. Whether you are young or old, short or tall, man or woman, traveling has always been that one activity which you wish you’d do more often. It’s understandable: discovering new places, meeting interesting people and always having a different experience – these are the things that we look forward to whenever we plan a trip.
“I wonder how [insert here your country or city of choice] is like this time of year”, sounds familiar, right? That’s because curiosity is in our nature! We thrive on new experiences that make us question everything or just make up a very good story to tell your friends back home.
Flying is the answer
Picture this: you’re sitting at home on a Saturday evening and thinking to yourself that you’ve never actually been to Paris, although most of your friends have all sorts of cocktail stories and fun memories. Why miss out on all those moments?
While traveling by car or train can be a hassle in this situation, you can always fly there!
When you are flying to a new destination, you’re not simply just traveling from A to B. Countries become borderless, the excitement becomes overwhelming and every time you look out the window the world becomes a canvas in which you are painting your own story.

How has Blue Air been evolving over the years?
We’ve talked previously about 3.5 years of constant success, but this could have not been possible if not for our lovely passengers and the hard work of our colleagues!
Speaking of passengers – their number has grown from 1.355.000+ in 2014 to a whopping 3.590.000+ in 2016. This is nothing compared to our estimation for 2017: 5 million passengers!
But with great passengers come great routes. From 2014’s 30 routes we’ve covered more ground in 2016 having 75 in total. It should come to no surprise that in 2017 we’ve already got 100+ operating routes.
Planes & Operational Bases
Side note: we love planes! That’s why we’ve grown our fleet from 2014 (11) to 2016 (24). All our aircraft travel daily between 6 operating bases: Bucharest, Bacău, Cluj-Napoca, Iași, Larnaca and Torino. But wait, there’s more! For 2017 we’ve got planned to open two new operational bases in Liverpool (at the end of March) and Constanța (in April).
This growth could not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of our Blue Air team members. That is why we’ve doubled the number of people who we work with daily – from 2014’s 514 employees to 2016’s 993 employees! With their help, we’ve received the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) certification in 2015 from the International Air Transportation Association (IATA) for Blue Air’s outstanding operational standards and the IATA membership.
Whew! That’s a lot of numbers! We can sum it all up to this: thank you to all our dear passengers that made our wildest dreams come true, because without your support, loyalty and feedback we would have never been here.
