Blue Air flights to Tbilisi and Cairo, in 2018
Good news doesn't come from Blue Air. According to news.ro, Gheorghe Răcaru said that Blue Air will launch direct routes Bucharest - Tbilisi (Georgia) and Bucharest - Cairo (Egypt). This will happen in 2018!
Year 2018 is very interesting for Romanian aviation. More and more new routes and travel opportunities are emerging. After many years, Romania will be linked to Canada through the direct flights operated by Air Canada Rouge.
Bucharest - Tbilisi (Georgia) and Bucharest - Cairo
At the same time, Blue Air will open 2 new routes: Bucharest - Tbilisi (Georgia) and Bucharest - Cairo (Egypt). About Tbilisi I observed a race in February, and the rumors announced with certainty the launch of this route. The surprise comes with mentioning the Bucharest - Cairo route.
On November, 22, information about the resumption of direct air links between Bucharest and Cairo. Going by the logical thread, we thought that these flights will be operated by TAROM, as has happened in the past. But Mr. Gheorghe Răcaru contradicts us and announces the possibility of launching the Blue Air route.
Also, Ilan Laufer, Minister for the Environment of Business, Commerce and Entrepreneurship and Gheorghe Răcaru, general manager of the Blue Air airline, had a discussion regarding the opening of these direct air links Tbilisi-Bucharest and Cairo-Bucharest.
So 2018 will be an interesting year, with many new routes, some for the first time for Romania. Let's not forget the route Tallinn - Constanta with Nordica, another surprise for Romania.
