Your Scottish Airport to the World
Blue Air launch new direct flights from Glasgow Airport to Iasi
19 June 2017
Glasgow Airport has welcomed the launch of its latest new route as Blue Air commence direct flights between Scotland's largest city and Iasi.
The inaugural flight departed from Glasgow Airport on 17 June 2017 with flights now operating every Tuesday and Saturday.
The new route between Scotland's largest city and Iasi is already proving popular with Glasgow’s large Romanian population as well as Romanian tourists using the service to visit Glasgow and discover Scotland's cultural capital boasting incredible architecture steeped in history, world-renowned shopping, crowded pubs and clubs and terrific restaurants, and other major tourist draws throughout Western Scotland including Argyll & Bute, Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park and many of the country’s top whisky distilleries and golf courses.
Flights between Glasgow and Iasi are proving equally popular with Scottish travellers.
Exuberant, cultured Iaşi (pronounced ‘yash’) clearly enjoys being the biggest city in Moldavia. Once dubbed the ‘city of the hundred churches’, Iaşi is indeed bursting with centuries of architectural creations. Yet besides the monasteries, theatres and other historic buildings, this eclectic place has botanical parks, big squares and (for better or for worse) both communist-era concrete structures and gleaming modern shopping malls. As with its shopping scene, Iaşi’s innumerable eateries, drinking holes and lively clubs depend on the robust university population. You'll find students from all over the world here – making this little corner of Romania unexpectedly cosmopolitan.
The new route between Glasgow and Iasi further cements Glasgow Airport’s position as Scotland's gateway to Romania with seven weekly direct flights to Bucharest and Iasi. Glasgow Airports multi-award winning customer service, unrivalled choice of worldwide destinations and its central location with direct motorway access ensures the airport is the preferred choice for travellers from across Scotland including those in Ayrshire, Edinburgh, Stirling, Perth, Dundee, Aberdeen and beyond.
Direct flights to Romania are not available from any other Scottish airport.
An Iași Airport spokesperson said: “By introducing new routes the airport generates new bridges to the world. The link to Glasgow is popular for university and cultural environment and, not least, is good for tourism and ethnic traffic. Many of our fellow citizens work in Glasgow. We are optimistic that this route will be a successful product, considering the demands of growing lately.”
Already Scotland's gateway to the world and the nation's fastest growing airport, Glasgow Airport has enjoyed huge success in recent times establishing itself as one of Europe's fastest growing airports with new flights taking-off to over 30 exciting destinations including Brussels, Cape Verde, Dubrovnik, Jamaica, Krakow, Lisbon, Madrid, New York JFK and Valencia - offering passengers over 1 million additional seats.
