A Romanian investor recently launched a low cost airline which runs regular flights to and from the country’s Danube Delta. The new airline Fly Romania, owned by Romanian Ovidiu Tender, connects the small city of Tulcea in Romania’s Danube Delta to the capital city Bucharest, as well as to Bergamo and Frankfurt.
This should help bring more tourists to Romania’s Danube Delta, which is one of the country’s main attractions.
The airline targets 100,000 passengers this year, and revenues of EUR 15 million, a third of which would come from domestic flights.
Fly Romania runs three weekly flights connecting Tulcea to Bucharest, on Tuesday, on Friday and on Sunday. The flights connecting Tulcea to Bergamo in Italy run on Tuesday and Friday, and the one to Frankfurt, on Sunday.
The Tulcea airport is quite small – last year, only 1,800 passengers transited it, mainly with charter flights.
Other international routes operated by the company from elsewhere in Romania are Verona – three flights a week from Timisoara and from Bucharest, Genova, with three flights from Bucharest, Barcelona, three flights a week from Bucharest, Palermo, again from Bucharest, with two flights a week. Starting June this year, it will also operate from Bucharest a flight a week to Antalya in Turkey.
Fly Romania also connects Bucharest to Timisoara with daily flights, except on Saturdays.
The airline charges EUR 69.9 per flight for the Bucharest – Timisoara connection, EUR 49.9 for the Bucharest – Tulcea flight, and prices starting ER 29.9 per flight for international routes.
Fly Romania is operated by Ten Airways, owned by Ovidiu Tender, which offers charter flight services, wet lease.
Ovidiu Tender owns the Romanian prospecting company Prospectiuni, which works with Romanian clients such as oil and gas companies Petrom, Romgaz and Rompetrol, as well as with clients from Europe, Africa and Middle East.
