Blue Air, a Romanian airline, has announced that it will be adopting flights from Birmingham Airport in the UK, to Larnaca, Cyprus from March 26, 2017.
Upon launch, the new flights will leave Birmingham Airport on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 11:15, arriving in Larnaca at 18:00.
Head of aviation development, Birmingham Airport, Tom Screen enthused on the news: “We are delighted that Blue Air is offering another route from Birmingham Airport. The airline has gone from strength to strength here offering low cost fares to popular destinations.
“Larnaca has much to offer holiday makers. It is known for its palm-fringed sea front and has brilliant diving opportunities, including the M.S. Zenobia ship wreck. With flights three times a week it’s now so easy to get to this sunny destination from the Midlands.”
Also commenting on the news was chief commercial officer, Blue Air, Tudor Constantinescu: “We are thrilled to announce our latest route to Birmingham, this time operating from our Larnaca. With the new addition, we are now linking Birmingham to three Blue Air bases – Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca and Larnaca – which highlights our commitment to the West Midlands’ gateway.”
Constantinescu added: “Passengers on the new route from Cyprus will be delighted with our top-quality service that includes a free hot meal and full beverage bar including wine served onboard. I am confident that the Birmingham-Larnaca route will be just as successful as our other flights to the UK and this will further enhance our position across the country.”
