Bees Airlines from Romania receives AOC

Start-up Bees Airlines from Romania has received its Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) on 20 March 2024, clearing the way for the airline to officially launch operations. In February, it took delivery of its first aircraft, Airbus A320 YR-BUZ (1922) and has used it on route-proving flights over the last weeks.

Bees Airlines is based at Bucharest and will operate charter-flights to the Mediterranean. According to CH-Aviation, the airline is planning to replace its current A320 with another in the coming weeks. Its website also shows renderings of Airbus A321s but it's unclear if Bees secured these.

It's interesting to note that this airline has no connection with Ukrainian Bees Airlines, which was launched in 2021 and has been dormant since the beginning of the war in Ukraine.
