A smooth complex quasi-affine algebraic variety Y is flexible if its special group SAut(Y) of automorphisms (generated by the elements of one-dimensional unipotent subgroups of Aut(Y)) acts transitively on Y, and an algebraic variety is stably flexible if its product with some affine space is flexible. An irreducible algebraic variety X is locally stably flexible if it is a union of a finite number of Zariski open sets each of which is stably flexible. The main result of this paper states that the blowup of a locally stably flexible variety along a smooth algebraic subvariety (not necessarily equidimensional or connected) is subelliptic, and, therefore, it is an Oka manifold.
