MyAir to withdraw from Romania if low-cost airport is switched

“We cannot afford to operate from Henri Coanda Airport. This would mean at least the doubling of airline tickets,” said Iervolino.

Prime Minister Tariceanu declared recently that he requested the Minister of Transport to prepare necessary measures to transform Aurel Vlaicu Airport and move low-cost flights to Henri Coanda Airport at Otopeni.

“Our clients do not require VIP services or plasmas, they do not need luxury, but good prices and safe arrival at their destination,” added the airline’s General Manager.

MyAir transported some 250,000 passengers to and from Romania in the first six months of 2008, 15 percent more year-on-year, due to the introduction of new destinations. At present, the airline has flights from Bucharest to Milan, Venice, Bologna, Catania, Rome, Naples and Bari.

Other low-cost airlines present in Romania are Blue Air (Romania), SkyEurope (Slovakia), Wizz Air (Hungary), Germanwings (Germany, easyJet (UK) and Ryanair (Ireland).
