New airline for Birmingham Airport

Birmingham Airport is set to welcome another new carrier in June 2017, offering a brand-new route to Chisinau, the capital of Eastern Europe's Republic of Moldova.

Fly One will operate three times a week from Birmingham, using an Airbus A319 with 144 seats each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

The flight will arrive into Birmingham from Chișinău at 12:25 and will depart at 13:20.

Not only will the flight improve the region’s connectivity to Moldova but it will also open up more doors to businesses looking to explore other Eastern and Central European markets.

From Chișinău, Fly One also fly to Moscow, St Petersburg and Voronezh (Russia), Rome, Milan, Parma, Verona and Venice (Italy), Lisbon (Portugal), Barcelona, Valencia (Spain) Dublin and Paris.

William Pearson, Birmingham Airport’s aviation director, said, “We are pleased that Fly One will be launching services in June and delivering a new destination from Birmingham to Moldova.

“We hope that the service will be also welcomed by the friends and relatives market wanting to gain direct access to this part of Eastern Europe as well as those looking for an alternative city break destination.”

Nicu Berla, general manager at Fly One, added: “We are honoured to operate our Airbus A319 connecting Birmingham to Chisinau.

“We wish that our three-times weekly scheduled flight that will connect Birmingham to Chisinau starting from 6 June will be welcomed and fully utilised by both our territories to possibly foresee growth and durable collaboration.

“The Republic of Moldova is a wonderful destination offering many leisure and business opportunities to be explored by those who wish to broaden and grow their experiences.”
