Bucharest, June 8
As a result of requests received from passengers, Blue Air announces new flights in June. These flights cover 21 destinations in 11 countries to and from which authorities announced the lifting of travel restrictions in the month of June.
"We are happy to be able to meet the demand received from our passengers and to start resuming flights. After 10 weeks on the ground and in technical unemployment, we, my colleagues the Blue Air pilots and flight attendants, together with the entire team, are excited to be able to gradually resume flying, even if at a very low level.
The good news is that, despite the significant reduction in the level of activity estimated for this year, last week, after long discussions with employee representatives and shareholders, we managed to find a collaboration formula that makes it possible for all pilots and flight attendants who wish to do so, to remain part of the Blue Air team. I would like to thank everyone for their love of flying and for their attachment to the company and passengers.” - says Oana Petrescu, CEO of Blue Air

Blue Air’ s commitment to safety
Blue Air has implemented rigorous safety protocols on board its aircraft. As early as February, Blue Air started to disinfect its planes daily, by means of a nebulization process, which uses substances that sterilize the entire space in which they are distributed. This modern process of sterilization and disinfection will be maintained indefinitely.
Furthermore, the Blue Air aircraft are equipped with HEPA air filters that have the same performances as those used in hospital operating rooms. The HEPA filters have an efficacy rate of over 99,97% in killing viruses and microbes and have a capacity of filtering dust particles of 0,1-0,3 microns.
As a confirmation of the correctness and effectiveness of the measures implemented, no member of the Blue Air crew was infected with the new coronavirus, despite the fact that during the state of emergency, Blue Air operated numerous charter and repatriation flights, including in red zone countries.
Blue Air passengers are required to wear protective face masks throughout the trip, disinfect their hands and avoid unnecessary movements in the cabin. Crews will instruct passengers on health safety measures and ensure their compliance. Prior to their flight, passengers are encouraged to read the protection and prevention measures which can be found in the dedicated section on the Blue Air website https://www.flyblueair.com/en/gb/faq-cov/
