A recent study considering the cheapest airlines in Europe has designated the Romanian low-cost airline Blue Air as third cheapest in Europe, being overrun only by Pegasus Airlines and Wizz Air.
The giant low-cost Ryan Air (not yet flying to Bucharest) has positioned on fourth place, being followed by easyJet, another big low-fare flight operator, which recently announced its come back to Romania, starting 17th of October 2013. easyJet, second biggest low-cost European airline (overrun only by Ryan Air) currently operates flights to Bucharest, Romania from Great Britain’s London Gatwick. easyJet flys to Bucharest four times a week, on Mondays, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. The study took into consideration the prices for more than 300,000 flights in the period October-November 2013.

Another good news is for the Bucharest tourists coming from Serbia, as the national Serbian company, Air Serbia will operate daily direct flights with its own planes from Belgrade to Bucharest starting December 10th 20013, so Air Serbia will compete with Romanian national airline Tarom for this route, hopefully with impact on fares reduction.
