Blue Air wracks up cancellation fines

The Qantas Boeing 787 Dreamliner plane arrives at Sydney International Airport after flying direct from New York on Sunday, October 20, 2019 in Australia. Qantas will operate the flights later this year, with medical scientists and health experts on board to conduct studies in the cockpit and the cabin to help determine strategies to promote long haul inflight health and wellbeing on ultra-long haul flights. It will be the first commercial airline to ever fly direct from New York to Sydney. It comes as the national carrier continues to work towards the final frontier of global aviation by launching non-stop commercial flights between the US and the UK to the east coast of Australia in an ambitious project dubbed "Project Sunrise".

Romania’s consumer protection agency ANPC announced that it has notified private airline Blue Air regarding a fine of RON 10 mln (EUR 2 mln) issued for the flights cancelled from June 15 up to this point. Namely, over 150,000 consumers from 23 member states of the European Union were affected.

The president of ANPC, Horia Constantinescu, criticized the airline for running promotion campaigns despite the problems it’s been facing, reported.

Blue Air failed to resume flights as of October 10, as intended when suspending all its flights a month earlier.

The conclusions of the research carried out by the ANPC commissioners showed that Blue Air did not propose a plan of remedial measures for consumers within the deadline set by the competent authorities.
