Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca said on Tuesday that he had a discussion with Minister of the Environment Barna Tanczos regarding the situation created following the suspension of Blue Air flights, according to Agerpres.
„I spoke with Minister Barna, because the seizure was made by the AFM and he is going to have a discussion with those who made this decision and unblock the situation because we cannot let the Romanians wait in the airports from which they were going to come to the country. It’s about 3,000 Romanians,” he said, before participating in the „Romania of the Future” event organised at the Polytechnic University.
Asked if there will be consequences, he replied: „I spoke with the minister, as I said, and we are going to analyse and make a decision.”
Blue Air Aviation suspends from Tuesday, September 6, until Monday, September 12, all flights scheduled to depart from Romanian airports, the company announced in a press release.
According to the representatives of the air operator, the suspension of flights was determined by the fact that, due to the seizure of all the company’s accounts by the Ministry of the Environment, Blue Air is unable to pay the current costs, necessary for the operation of daily flights.
