Romania's Blue Air to cancel some routes in Jan, Feb due to low demand Blue Air

BUCHAREST (Romania), December 29 (SeeNews) - Romanian low-cost carrier Blue Air said on Wednesday it will cancel some of its flights scheduled for January and February due to low demand caused by new Covid-19 restrictions imposed in some European countries.

Passengers have adopted a cautious behavior during this period, Blue Air representatives said in a press release.

"We notice that, due to travel restrictions, many passengers rescheduled their trips in January and February, focusing on booking holidays around the Easter and summer holidays," Blue Air general manager Oana Petrescu said.

Blue Air will focus on its summer programme with increased capacity and a renewed fleet, planning more than 50 new destinations in the summer, it added.

Blue Air, the only air carrier in Romania with 100% domestic capital, started operations in December 2004. The company has so far transported over 32 million passengers over 340 million km.

At the end of October, Ridgecrest, an AIM-listed cash shell, announced that it has terminated negotiations on its proposed reverse takeover of Blue Air. The decision was a consequence of the airline's inability to raise the pre-reverse takeover funding, which was was the main condition of the non-binding heads of agreement between Ridgecrest and Blue Air's vendors announced in July, Ridgecrest said at the time.
