The Romanian airline Dan Air has made adjustments to the planned route network from Bucharest and Brasov about a month before the planned entry into scheduled business. Some routes will not be included due to a lack of demand, while others will be increased. Connections to Germany are also affected.
Dan Air, formerly known as Just Us Air, has traditionally specialized in the provision of ACMI and charter services. After the collapse of the low-cost airline Blue Air, Romania still has some gaps that have not been filled by other airlines. In addition, the low-cost airlines Ryanair and Wizz Air, which have a strong presence in this country, have each discontinued one or the other route in a dispute over airport fees and subsidies. Dan Air has "sniffed the fuse" and dared to enter the scheduled business on its own account.
With the machine type Airbus A320 one wants to set up a route network from Brasov and Bucharest. About this, Aviation.Direct repeatedly reported. It was recently announced that tickets will be available from the first city mentioned worth 700.000 euros. However, Dan Air has to admit that not all routes, which are also to be served at extremely low frequencies, have been euphorically received by the market.
Due to poor booking figures, it was decided that the destinations Berlin, Munich, Rome-Fiumicino, Milan-Linate and Budapest will not be included from Bucharest. The total number of destinations offered from the Romanian capital is thus reduced to nine routes (Brussels, Nuremberg, Stuttgart, Tel Aviv, Beirut, London-Gatwick, Barcelona, Madrid and Malaga), for which a total of 12 rotations per week are to be carried out.
From Brasov, there are increases on the routes to Nuremberg and Munich due to high demand even before the first flight. These should not be controlled once, but twice a week. However, there are also routes from this airport that have not been accepted by the market. Therefore, the destinations Milan-Linate and Budapest have been canceled from Brasov. As a result, there will be no presence at the airport of the Italian metropolis or in Budapest.
According to Dan Air, Airbus A320s will be used in a two-class configuration from Bucharest and Brasov. There are 162 seats in economy class. You have 12 in business class. As is usual with many European airlines, however, there are no "real C-seats", but leave the middle seats free in business class. Thus, the seats do not differ from those in economy class.
