It seems Blue Air will fly from my city to Zaventem. First flight on 16th of June. According to information on fly-ra forum, it will be two weekely, on Wednesday and Saturday, as follows:

0B3723: Cluj Napoca (CLJ) 13:00 – 15:30 Bruxelles (BRU);
0B3724: Bruxelles (BRU) 16:15 – 18:45 Cluj Napoca (CLJ).

Fun fact: local media asked BMS; a PR rep. denied the launch of the new flights...

---------------

Currently Cluj is already linked to CRL by Wizz. 3/7 in W17/18 and 5/7 in S18. Considering the prices, the yield must be preatty good. Personally I'm not a fan of CRL.

---------------

One of the four shareholders of BMS resides in Belgium and owns Maxitours travel agency.

If the schedule and the date is out, this seems a valid flight. Any confirmation ?

At the moment, there is no official confirmation. The schedule, the flight number and the launch date were posted here: https://forum.fly-ra.com/threads/blue-a ... 8/page-264

As it seems that more then one forumer have some knowledge of the new flights, and the ground handling operator was informed too. But this is all.

Am I right in assuming that this is mainly the follow up of the merger between SN and TCB ?

That's exactly what Airline Route says (except for 4 routes).

Malta is codeshared with Air Malta so no need to fly it their own .. and the rest, well if they need charter flights (they = Sunweb, Neckerman or any other touroperator) they'll operate it .. Royal wings already flies to Aqaba during certain months and Larnaca was tried by Cobalt but has stopped already .. maybe Eurowings will launch some routes later on ;-)

I was stating the list of the dot missing in the leisure network regardless that there is already a code share or that other airlines already fly it.

the reason why it's not in the network probably is because there isn't enough demand for it both ways and all year round or even seasonal

I was in the booking engine from SN looking for a flight to london, and when I opened the search motor and wrotte LONDON to destination, 2 tabs opened, London Heathrow (LHR) and then ... London Stansted (STN) however there were n flight bookable (yet) for this one.

I'm not surprise that they could be opening a new destination in London area, as the 3 daily flight to LHR are quite full and a new slot in LHR would cost a lot, but why STN, wouldn't it be better LGW then.

Just tried with departure and arrival destinations, I only had London Heathrow, then I searched for STN but nothing...
