Tourism ministry and Blue Air meet travel industry in Olof Palme residence
People in the travel industry were invited this week to an information evening in the Romanian spirit, held by the Romanian Ministry of Tourism and Blue Air, which recently launched new routes in the Nordic countries.
The event was held at the Romanian Embassy in Stockholm, in the house known for being the residence for former Swedish politician and prime minister Olof Palme.
Together with Romanian incoming agents, the ministry presented a program with elements of history, culture, nature and both old and new attractions.
Romania as destination is moving forward quickly, with the government deciding on further investment in tourism, which it sees as an important source of economic growth.
Natalia Ciocotisan from Blue Air’s head office said the carrier had developed at high speed and now has more than 100 destinations, compared to 70 in 2016, and from 3.6 million passengers in 2016 to a 2017 forecast of 5 million.
Blue flies direct to Bucharest, an increasingly popular destination for city breaks, MICE and conferences, from Sweden, Denmark and Norway, with departures two to three times a week. The Romanian coastline is also not far away.
Romania is perhaps best known for the historical figure Dracula, who still flourishes in some places. In Bucharest there is a Dracula museum, while in the countryside on the way to Transylvania, Bran Castle is also branded as Dracula’s Castle.
Besides the Bucharest flights, there are also Blue Air flights from Stockholm and Copenhagen direct to Turin in Italy, which in winter is close to Alpine skiing attractions.
