BUCHAREST (Romania), January 9 (SeeNews) - Romanian low-cost carrier Blue Air said on Thursday it will launch eight routes from Bucharest and the eastern cities of Iasi and Bacau as of mid-June.

Blue Air will start flying from Bucharest to Munich in Germany on June 15, Blue Air said in a press release.

The service to Munich will be operated four times a week.

Next, Blue Air will launch a service from Iasi to Verona in Italy, which it will operate three times a week.

From Bacau, Blue Air will fly to Athens, Birmingham, Copenhagen, Larnaca, Oslo and Stuttgart.

Blue Air, the only air carrier in Romania with 100% domestic capital, started operations in December 2004. In 2013, it was taken over by Airline Management Solutions Company for 30 million euro ($33.3 million).

The airline has bases in Romania, Italy, the United Kingdom and Cyprus and a fleet of 29 aircraft. Blue Air operates flights to more than 100 destinations in 20 countries.

In October 2018, Civil Aviation Group comprising Blue Air and two individual associates, bought the indebted flag carrier of neighbouring Moldova for some 61 million euro.

Blue Air swung to a 3.4 million euro net profit in the financial year ended September 30, 2019, from a loss of 24.4 million euro in the preceding financial year.
