Only one year after moving operations from Charleroi Brussels South airport to Zaventem, Romanian low-cost carrier Blue Air has decreased the number of flights from Bucharest Baneasa to Brussels. Starting from the 26th of October there will be only two flights a week . On Mondays JOR 123 leaves BBU at 08h20 and arrives in BRU at 10h15. On Fridays JOR 123 leaves Romania at 15h20. Flights to Constanta were seasonal and are obviously discontinued during the winter season.

With traffic rights between BRU and STN? Normally yes, since they are an EU airline, but will there be many bookings?

Typical, you react like we say in Dutch: kuddegeest mentaliteit, meelopers. An intellectual men would first checked out all his sources before post in a topic, something you never did because you have no sources except the newspapers.

In meantime, Established02 had probably a problem with the bookingengine, a common problem. As today you can book flights with Sterling to Oslo, Copenhagen and Stockholm beyond 29 September. And second, Sterling has a special regime during some months of the year, but maybe you also didn't knew that.
