A Romanian airline has cancelled flights due to Brexit uncertainty. Blue Air made the decision to halt their flights from Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport.
Many passengers were left fuming after they were not able to board their scheduled flights to Alicante and Rome.
Blue Air flights between Luton and Turin are also expected to be affected. The airline will continue to fly to Romania and UK, but from the UK to any other nation in trouble if the UK exits the European Union with a deal that doesn’t include a continuation of existing EU legislation.
A spokesman for John Lennon Airport said: “Blue Air has successfully operated its based aircraft for two years in Liverpool serving a wide range of routes.
“Unfortunately, as a Romanian Air Operator Certificate (AOC) holder, the current Brexit impasse means that the carrier has been unable to receive the necessary clarity regarding their ability to operate seventh freedom services which are currently possible under EU Open Skies.
“The carrier will continue to serve Liverpool John Lennon Airport and will increase flights this summer to Bucharest and Bacau.”

Since you are here

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
