The TAROM company will make all the necessary efforts to meet the needs of Romanian citizens affected by the suspension of Blue Air flights, the national airline operator announced on Wednesday, according to Agerpres.
„In the current context related to the suspension of Blue Air Company flights, TAROM specifies that, although it is in a period with a very busy flight schedule and a load factor that uses the maximum capacity of the aircraft’s transport capacity, it will make all the necessary efforts to meet the needs of the affected Romanian citizens, who are currently stuck at various airports abroad,” the company’s representatives claim in a press release sent to Agerpres.
Also, TAROM specifies that it will supplement the operating capacity and introduce special runs during this period.
„We will analyze carefully, and as always, we will make intensive efforts to supplement the operating capacity and identify solutions for introducing special flights in this difficult context,” the company representatives say.
Blue Air Aviation announced on Tuesday that it is suspending until Monday, September 12, all flights scheduled to depart from Romanian airports, due to the seizure of all the company’s accounts by the Ministry of the Environment, which makes it impossible for the company to pay the current costs, necessary for the operation of daily flights .
More than 3,000 passengers were affected by the airline’s decision.
Romanians stranded at airports abroad following the suspension of flights by the Blue Air airline can request help at the consular sections of the Romanian embassies or by calling the telephone number 0040751084537, managed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE), and will be brought to the country by TAROM aircraft, announced on Tuesday the spokesperson of the Government, Dan Carbunaru.
On July 14, ANPC slapped fines worth two million euros on Blue Air for the cancellation of more than 11,000 flights between April 30, 2021 and April 30, 2022, and forced the company to return the money to customers within a maximum of ten days for all flights cancelled.
