is a private Romanian
airline with its base in Bucharest Baneasa
airport (the capital's second airport). It operates domestically, to main provincial cities in Romania. Despite being a small airline, it is becoming increasingly attractive for business flyers due to its good and modern quality.
Angel Airlines was founded as a result of Romania's rapid economic development, and the growing domestic and short-haul international airline market. Its aim at the current moment is to connect other cities in Romania and the region with Bucharest, the country's business center, and a major economic center in the Eastern and Central Europe region.
Angel was founded in August 2001, first flying from Bucharest to Baia Mare and Iasi. The list of destinations gradually increased, and today Angel flies to the following destinations from Bucharest:
Some flights are under codeshare agreements with TAROM, the national carrier. According to Angel's business practise, Angel has two flights on each route, one in the morning and one in the evening, for maximum efficiency.
In August 2002, the airline adopted a new business strategy that was still focused on efficient timing and routes, but also on international and charter flights. The airline is in agreement with a number of Romanian tour operators to provide charter flights to destinations in Turkey, Albania, Bulgaria, Greece and Italy. The airline also introduced the following international and domestic flights:
Angel Airlines is also planning to introduce flights on the route Bucharest-Tirana-Bari
