If you fly to Bucharest or leave from Bucharest, you should know that you can opt for Baneasa Airport. The airport has reopened, and the boarding time is much shorter.
Bucharest Aurel Vlaicu International Airport (Baneasa) reopens in honour of the 110th anniversary of its founding after nine years from closing.
George Dorobantu, the director of Bucharest Airports Company, claims that three air companies are already prepared to begin charter flights on Băneasa after the airport underwent a program to update the structures and equipment in recent years.
We already have three advanced discussions in the stage of signing contracts to operate from Băneasa. It is about Ryanair which is looking for solutions to increase its aircraft base in Romania, they will operate two flights from the autumn or winter season, Air Connect which announced its intention to operate from Băneasa as well, currently they are authorized for Otopeni, but they will also operate in Baneasa, for short-haul ATR aircraft flights. There is another company registered in the Republic of Moldova, Fly One for charter flights, Baneasa-Chisinau.George Dorobantu, the director of Bucharest Airports Company
Unlike Otopeni Airport, where passengers must arrive at least two hours before boarding, the time will be less than an hour at Baneasa.
The Romanian Air League, under the direction of Prince George Valentin Bibescu, established a pilot school in Baneasa on August 1, 1912. Today, Băneasa Airport is regarded as the third-oldest airport in the world that is still in use.
