Getting around by air

Romania has good air connections to Europe and the Middle East. At the time of research there were no direct flights to Romania from North America or Southeast Asia.

Airports & Airlines

The majority of international flights to Romania arrive at Bucharest’s Henri Coandă International Airport. Several other cities have international airports that service mostly domestic flights, but normally also have flights to select European cities. The largest of these include:

Cluj Avram Iancu International Airport

Iaşi Airport

Sibiu International Airport

Timișoara Traian Vuia International Airport

Romania’s national carrier is Bucharest-based Tarom. While the airline was previously the butt of jokes, in recent years it has transformed itself into a safe and reliable carrier. It operates an extensive network of domestic flights to cities around Romania. It also flies to major cities in Europe, including London and Paris, and the Middle East.

Many other national carriers, particularly from Europe and the Middle East, operate regular flights to Romania, normally between their respective capitals and/or major cities and Bucharest.

Additionally, many budget carriers service the Romanian market, mainly to and from destinations in Italy, Spain, Germany and the UK. These include Bucharest-based WizzAir (www.wizzair.com) and Blue Air (www.blueairweb.com), as well as EuroWings (www.eurowings.com) and Ryanair (www.ryanair.com). Check the airline websites for the latest information on flights and routes.

Major carriers include the following:

Air France (www.airfrance.com)

Austrian Airlines (www.austrian.com)

British Airways (www.britishairways.com)

Lufthansa (www.lufthansa.com)

Swiss Airlines (www.swiss.com)

Tickets

Fares vary depending on the route, the time of year, and the day of the week. Romania’s high season is summer (June to August) and a short period around Christmas. The rest of the year is quieter and cheaper. Weekday flights tend to be more expensive than weekends, or trips that include a weekend stay.

For flights within Europe, travellers have the choice of several major, full-fare carriers as well as budget carriers. Budget options from Britain, Italy and Spain are particularly good.

For transatlantic and long-haul flights a travel agent or internet aggregator are probably still the best sources of cheap tickets. One feasible option is to find the best deal to a European hub, like London, and then try to find a budget flight from there. That might land you the cheapest deal, but bear in mind budget airlines rarely use main airports, and you're likely to have to change not just planes en route but airports too.

Departure Tax

Departure tax is included in the price of a ticket.
