Iasi Airport has a very good evolution, especially during the last 2 years, and continues the upward trend in terms of passenger traffic. January 2015 increased nearly 40% compared to January 2014.
The statistical data for January, although a month unfavorable from the commercial point of view and of the traffic of passengers, show an increase of almost 40% of the total number of passengers boarded and disembarked in Iaşi.
"The number of passengers who passed through Iasi Airport in January is really impressive compared to the figures recorded last year and throughout the history of the Iasi airport, so we want to thank all those who chose to travel through us. Now we all begin to realize the fundamental role of the new runway - take-off, endowments with state-of-the-art equipment and increasing the operating category in low visibility conditions. We are beginning to understand that the future of Iasi Airport, of our local and regional community is directly linked to everything we have done and we continue to do here, for the good of our community.
