Work is underway at the Brasov-Ghimbav International Airport
In a few years, Brasov will enter the map of the operational airports in Romania. This way we will be able to avoid the endless queues of cars on the Prahova Valley and we will arrive much faster in the mountain resorts. It is an investment necessary for the development of tourism in the area, but also for Brasov. After 20 years of promises, projects and calculations, the work will begin in 2013.
The contract for the start of the works for the construction of the runway of the Brasov-Ghimbav international airport was signed on Sunday between the County Council and the company Vectra Service SRL, the winner of the auction. Following the completion of the runway, next year the tender will also start for the construction of the terminal for which, as the president of the County Council, Aristotel Căncescu, are already interested companies from abroad.
The runway will be 2850 meters long and 45 meters wide, and work will begin next spring. It will be built to the current international standards, from a special concrete with the agreements and the bands for the management of the asphalt planes.
The president of the CJ said that in two years time the first planes could land on the airport in Brasov. The price for the construction of the runway is 12,7 million plus VAT.
