Starting October 9, 2020, Blue Air connects Bucharest with Amsterdam and with the whole world, providing its passengers with daily services to and from this key destination, at prices starting from 29 euro/segment.

Today Blue Air celebrated the inaugural flight of the route Bucharest Otopeni (OTP) – Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS) and was greeted with the traditional water salute on arrival at Schiphol International Airport.
