Follow your dreams and fly with Blue Air

By plane was always my favorite way to travel. Departure, arrival, safety briefing & measurements, lots of smiles and all kind of uniforms, so different from one airline to another. My first ever flight was when I was only 10 years old, the choice back then was Blue Air. A 2 hours and 45 minutes flight from Bucharest Otopeni Airport to Heraklion Nikos Kazantzakis International Airport in Crete, Greece. The emotions and the level of happiness felt were something I am not able to compare with anything else until the today’s day. I’ve never been on a plane before and I had no idea what would it be like or how deeply in love I will fall with flying, planes and the idea of being up there, in the air, in the clouds…

As soon as I walked in I smiled, I remember it as if it was yesterday. I was so excited to be in there, so excited to experience being at 11.000 meters up in the air and moving with a speed of over 800 km per hour.

Blue Air is the largest Romanian airline by scheduled passengers flown and also the first and only Romanian company which will be having the new Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes, under their wing ( due to be delivered in 2019-2021). In 2017, Blue air helped over 5 million people to safely reach their destinations, compared to 2016 when only 3,6 millions chose to fly with them. With new destinations every year, the company manages to easily satisfy even the most pretentious flight lovers and the quality-price ratio is one of the best in all low-cost airline companies. ( see Wizz Air, Ryan Air or Easy Jet ).

In 2018, 11 years away since my first ever flight, I decided to rechoose Blue Air. Route Birmingham Airport to Cluj Napoca International and flying with a Boeing 737-800. As I said before, I absolutely love flying, give me a pair of earphones, good music, and a window seat and I could live in a plane forever ( wouldn’t that be a dream? ) just staring at the clouds and the beautiful view of everything underneath. As much as I love flying, I honestly prefer low-cost plane traveling. Why? Because personally, I don’t need a bed, champagne, and instagrammable food to really enjoy being there. I think prices are exaggerated for the first/business class flights and I  will forever regret the money wasted on these.

Professionalism and excellence are two words which describe Blue Air perfectly. During the 3 hours flight from Birmingham to Cluj Napoca, the cabin crews were smiling continuously and each one of them looked as if they were taken out of a box. Perfect looking make-up, perfectly arranged hair and perfectly tailored uniforms for both the boys and the girls in the staff. The captain informed the passengers every 20 minutes, about the weather, the altitude of the flight, the speed or the temperature outside and all the way to the city we were flying above or the time-zone of the country underneath. I strongly believe, the communication between the captain/cabin crews and the passengers of the flight is extremely important and unfortunately many of the low-cost companies kind of forget or simply don’t care about it. The flight attendants were extremely friendly and always had a smile on their faces, a great and open attitude and happy to help with any kind of information. No rude looks or ironical talk, things which I experienced before with other airlines.

Bucharest, Lisbon, Cluj Napoca, Alicante, Barcelona, Bologna, Bordeaux, Tel Aviv, Catania, Corfu, Copenhagen and so on. With over 70 destinations to fly to, many hours of flying and thousands of smiles, if this doesn’t convince you to give Blue Air a go at least once, then I don’t know what else will.

With love, one of those girls who love to travel.

Romana:

Zborul cu avionul a fost mereu preferatul meu. Decolare, aterizare, safety briefing, zambete si uniforme care mai de care. Primul meu zbor a fost cand aveam 10 ani, Bucuresti-Heraklion, Creta. Emotiile primului zbor si nivelul de fericire resimtit a fost ceva incomparabil pana in ziua de astazi. Nu zburasem cu avionul niciodata si habar nu aveam cum avea sa fie si cat de tare urma sa ma indragostesc de a fi acolo sus, printre nori…in aer.

Imediat ce am pasit inauntru am zambit, primul meu zbor a fost cu, compania Blue Air. Cea mai mare companie aeriana romaneasca dupa numarul de pasageri transportati si de asemenea prima si singura companie romaneasca care va avea ” sub aripa ” sa noile avioane Boeing 737 MAX 8. In anul 2017, Blue Air a ajutat peste 5 milioane de pasageri sa ajunga in siguranta la destinatie, in comparatie cu 2016 cand doar 3,6 milioane de oameni au ales compania aeriana.  Cu noi destinatii in fiecare an, compania fondata in anul 2004 reuseste sa satisfaca chiar si cei mai prietentiosi iubitori de zbor, iar raportul calitate pret este unul din cele mai bune in domeniul companiilor Low Cost nationale si internationale.

In 2018, 11 ani mai tarziu de la primul meu zbor cu Blue Air, am decis sa ii realeg. De data asta insa o cu totul alta destinatie, Birmingham-Cluj Napoca. Asa cum am spus si mai sus, iubesc sa zbor cu avionul. Da-mi o pereche de casti, telefonul si un loc la geam si pot sta in avion pentru totdeauna holbandu-ma la tot ceea ce este dedesubt. Cu toate astea, de fiecare data aleg sa calatoresc cu low cost airlines, de ce? Pentru ca personal, nu am nevoie de pat, sampanie sau mancare ” instagrammable ” ca sa ma bucur de zborul cu avionul. Este o parere personala si mi-o asum. Pentru mine, simplul fapt ca sunt in avion este de ajuns.

Profesionalismul si excelenta sunt doua cuvinte care descriu perfect compania, pe tot parcursul zborului ( 3 ore ) tot crew-ul a fost in continuu cu zambetul pe buze iar fiecare membru arata ca scos din cutie. Machiaj perfect, parul perfect aranjat si uniformele care veneau ca turnate atat pe fete cat si pe baieti. Capitanul facea anunturi din 20 in 20 de minute, atat despre vreme, cat si despre altitudinea sau viteza de zbor pana la orasul peste care zburam la momentul respectiv sau temperatura de afara. Cred ca, comunicarea cu pasagerii, atat din partea cabin crews cat si din partea capitanului, este foarte importanta si din pacate majoritatea companiilor low cost nu pun destul de mult pret pe acest aspect. Staff-ul a fost foarte prietenos si gata oricand de ajutor, fara priviri rautacioase sau remarci ironice asa cum se intampla la alte companii.

Bucuresti, Cluj, Alicante, Tel Aviv, Helsinki, Atena, Barcelona,  Bari, Bologna, Bordeaux, Catania, Corfu, Copenhaga si lista poate continua. Peste 70 de destinatii de explorat, o gramada de ore de zbor si multe zambete. Daca asta nu te face sa vrei sa zbori macar odata cu Blue Air, atunci nu stiu ce altceva ar putea.

Semnat, fata care iubeste sa calatoreasca.
