Blue Air (Blue Air), the Romanian low-cost company based at Bucharest International Airport, is suspending all its flights from airports in Romania for a week (until September 12), according to a report on the Romania Insider website.

According to the Blue Air company, it was forced to make the decision after the Romanian Ministry of the Environment seized its bank accounts, which does not allow it to conduct business as usual. At the same time, the company does not specify the factors that led to the drastic decision of the Romanian authorities.

Blue Air also claims that the statement by the head of the Romanian Consumer Protection Agency (ANPC) calling on passengers to stop buying Blue Air tickets led to the loss of ticket sales worth 5 million euros and pressure from its suppliers to pay the bills in advance. The company also says that the recent events blocked the talks it had with two investment companies from London that were interested in joining as shareholders.

On September 6, a few hours before announcing the suspension of its flights, Blue Air also announced the suspension of codeshare operations with Air Connect, a small Romanian airline that had only recently started operating. According to the agreement Blue Air was supposed to transfer the operation of selected domestic and international regional services in the European Union to Air Connect.

Blue Air resumed flights on the Bucharest – Tel Aviv route in April 2022 with 2 weekly flights and then moved to 5 weekly flights. The flights operate using Boeing 8-MAX737 aircraft.
