The Moldovan company, which already operates flights to and from Beauvais-Tillé airport, will launch two weekly frequencies between Bordeaux and Bucharest from December 21.

The Moldovan low-cost company HiSky, which also operates with an air operating certificate from Romania, announced that it would launch flights from December 21, two flights per week between Bordeaux and Bucharest, on Mondays and Thursdays. The company was created in 2020 and started flights in 2021. It was founded by Iulian Scorpan, a former pilot of Air Moldova.

Troubled beginnings

Although created in 2020, it had some startup problems, notably due to difficulties caused by the air transport crisis linked to the Covid-19 pandemic. On December 11, 2020, it obtained its Air Operator Certificate in Romania (where it now serves four destinations from Cluj) and on February 19, 2021, it obtained its AOC in Moldova. Following the start of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, it suspended its flights to Moscow and Saint Petersburg, following the civil aviation authority’s ban on flying over the Russian airspace.

HiSky currently operates around twenty destinations with charter or regular flights, departing from its two bases in Chisinau (Moldova) and Cluj (Romania) to thirteen countries. In France, it currently operates flights to and from Beauvais-Tillé airport, specializing in low-cost flights. It operates a fleet of seven aircraft (4 Airbus A320-200s, 2 Airbus A321LRs and 1 Airbus A319-100).
