Blue Air have launched their latest European base at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) to operate the airline’s four new routes to Rome, Milan, Hamburg and Alicante.
Last October Blue Air launched a competition for the public to design a new livery for this aircraft, with the winning design seen in Liverpool for the first time this week.
The unique livery recognises the City’s strong musical links, its warm welcome and famous city skyline, with both halves of the City’s football support catered for through the use of both blue and red colours.
The basing of a Blue Air aircraft at Liverpool will be creating up to 35 new, direct, local jobs, with a number of new airline employees on hand to meet guests during today’s celebrations.
Next week, Blue Air’s Liverpool base will introduce daily departures to Rome Fiumicino, four times weekly services to Milan Bergamo and Hamburg, as well as a three times weekly service to Alicante.
Earlier this month, Blue Air announced what will become their eighth route to operate from Liverpool, with twice weekly flights to Larnaca in Cyprus commencing in June too.
Blue Air first started operations from Liverpool in December 2014, with a three times weekly departure to Bucharest. Just 3 months later the airline added a twice weekly service to Bacau in March 2015 followed by a twice weekly service to Cluj-Napoca in June 2016.
