The 2 runway (08L - 26R) of the Bucharest "Henri Coandă" Airport was opened
Bucharest National Airport Company announces the reopening of the take-off runway no. 2 (08L-26R) starting with 20 June, 18.00 hours, according to the schedule announced previously.
Starting from 20 June, the track no. 2 will be operational over the entire length of 3500 meters, which will lead to an increase in the airport's operating capacity by over 50%, up to a number of 39 landings and departures per hour.
Track 2 (08L - 26R) has been opened
The asphalt paving works cost approx. 1.25 million lei and lasted 30 days. After the reception of the works, during the period 13-20 June, the preparatory operations for the reopening of the runway (marking, flight calibration, authorizations, etc.) were carried out.
Here the miracle happened. From 20 June, Henri Coandă Bucharest International Airport operates 2 runways of 3500 meters. We hope to see track No. 1 (08R - 26L) completely restored. And, if all goes well, maybe we will see in Bucharest Boeing 747-type aircraft.
