Further information became available today about the new low-cost subsidiary airline being started by the Italian airline, Blue Panorama.
They will launch Blu-express, based at Rome (Fiumicino), with flights beginning from 21 November 2005. They have initially made details available about 6 routes. Blu-express will initially fly to Bari and Milan (Malpensa) from November, and will launch the remaining 4 routes to Grenoble, Munich, Vienna and Nice from 15 December.
It had originally been anticipated that this airline would be called Blue Express (there still appears to be some confusion on their official web site), and it is suspected that they changed this name very recently.
