1 million passengers at Avram Iancu - Cluj International Airport
"Avram Iancu" Cluj International Airport celebrated, on 23 May 2019, its passenger with the number 1.000.000 registered in the year 2019. The threshold of 1 million passengers was reached a day earlier compared to the year 2018. It follows that Cluj International Airport is on an increasing trend in passenger air traffic.
"Avram Iancu" Cluj International Airport reaches, for the ninth time in its history, the threshold of 1 million passengers record in a calendar year. It is a very important achievement, which is due both to the strategy of developing the airport infrastructure and to expanding the route network by intensifying the negotiations with the airline operators.
