Two Planes, Two Options For Blue Air Transport Aerian
Boeing announced this week an order
from Romanian low-cost airline Blue Air Transport Aerian, for two
737-800s and purchase rights for two more.
The airplanes will join the airline's all-Boeing fleet to
provide extra capacity in a fast-growing market. The order is
valued at approximately $150 million at list prices.
"We have doubled our passenger traffic every year since starting
our operations. Looking toward the future, the Next-Generation
737-800 is the most capable airplane on the market with a proven
and impressive track record. It is the right airplane for our
forecasted growth in this region," said Gheorghe Racaru, general
manager of Blue Air. Blue Air will begin operating a Boeing
737-800, acquired through a lease agreement, later in 2008.
Blue Air started operations in December 2004 as the first
Romanian low-cost carrier. It operates from Bucharest's Baneasa
International airport offering service to European destinations.
Blue Air operates an all-Boeing fleet of five 737 Classics.

Marlin Dailey, vice president of Sales, Europe, Russia &
Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "Blue Air can transition
its operations smoothly from the Boeing 737 Classic to the
"Romanian industry's proven success and expertise with 737
operations and maintenance help make the 737 an ideal choice for
Blue Air. Boeing and Romania's aviation community have enjoyed a
positive relationship since the 1970s and today's order builds on
