Published: 24 December 2013

Carpatair, one of Romania’s leading airlines, launched services this week from London Luton Airport to Chisinau, the capital city of the Republic of Moldova.

Services operate twice weekly on Thursdays and Sundays, with fares starting from as little as £103 (fare and taxes included).  

A 148 seat Boeing 737-300, services the route with tickets on sale at and through the Global Distributions Systems via IATA travel agencies in the UK and worldwide.  

Simon Harley, Airline Development Manager at London Luton Airport, said: “It is fantastic that Carpatair are now operating from London Luton. This is our first service to the Republic of Moldova and to be able to launch a new destination with yet another new carrier choosing to come to London Luton is testament to the Airport’s convenient location and efficient operations. With Carpatair’s quality onboard service and competitive fares, we are sure the Chisinau flights will be a great success.” 

Carpatair Network & Revenue Management Director, Darie Andron, said: “We are delighted to connect the Moldovan and English capitals with our new flights.  Responding to our customers’ needs we look forward to serving passengers on this route and making it a further part of this exciting success story.”
