HiSky has this week announced plans to operate nonstop direct flights between Bucharest and New York JFK with an Airbus A330-200.
This represents the first time in 20 years that these direct flights will be operated, and are already on sale.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
HiSky To Operate Bucharest-New York with Airbus A330-200…
HiSky’s flights are scheduled to depart Bucharest at 8:00 local time and arrive in New York at 11:25 local time, making the transatlantic journey just over 10 hours.
For return flights, the aircraft is set to depart JFK at 13:25 local time and land in Otopeni at 6:15 local time.
Commenting on this momentous occasion was Iulian Scorpan, CEO of HiSky:
“We are extremely proud to officially reopen this strategic route after more than two decades. Starting June, New York will once again be listed on Otopeni Airport’s Departures-Arrivals board.”
“This is a significant milestone for HiSky and even more so for Romania and all passengers wishing to travel across the ocean without stopovers or time wasted at other airports.”
“The USA is now a viable travel option for the first time since air travel became accessible to everyone. We are delighted to be the ones paving this way.”
“Three years ago, when we began operations, we aimed to be the primary choice for Romanian passengers.”
“We’ve proven our worth through thousands of flights across Europe, and now we’re excited to give them this gift right before the holidays.”
All eyes will be on how this new service between Bucharest and New York JFK will perform, as well as whether there is scope to expand this further going into the future.
