Tarom gives up international flights from Iasi airport


Romania’s state-owned airline Tarom will give up the direct international flights to Madrid and Munich from the Iasi airport, reports local Economica.net.

Several unhappy customers said that they tried to contact the call center operators, but received no response. The representative of the Munich office confirmed the information.

Last month the airline announced that it would give up the flights from Iasi to Turin, Bologna, and Rome. One of the main reasons is that Tarom lacks aircraft.

Last year, the company withdrew the A310 models from its fleet. It is now searching to rent two aircraft to replace them.

Alexandru Anghel, director of the Iasi airport, said that he met with Tarom representatives and that no final decision has been yet made. “When Tarom gives up a destination, it is taken over by others,” Anghel said.

Irish low-cost airline Ryanair is interested in starting operations from the Iasi airport.
