Blue Air is the biggest airline of Romania as of June, 2016 and is headquartered in Bucharest, with its main hubs at Henri Coandă International Airport and Turin Airport. In 2016, the airline carried 3.6 million passengers, a significant increase from the 2 million passengers in 2015. As of May 2016, Blue Air flies to 48 destinations in 12 European countries. ==History== Blue Air started its operations in December 2004. In its early years, although largely focusing on international flights, Blue Air also operated domestic Bucharest-Timișoara and Bucharest-Cluj flights, though these were soon discontinued due to low demand and competition from TAROM as well as Căile Ferate Române, the Romanian rail company. Due to the growing economy and increase in air travel, Blue Air resumed its domestic operations in 2015 starting with Bucharest-Iasi flights, followed by several new routes in 2016 between major Romanian cities, including Cluj-Napoca, Oradea and Timisoara.
