"We are convinced that we will remain at the top of the country's airports in terms of air traffic.

The target number of passengers predicted by the end of this year is 1.000.000-1.2000.000. An estimate made without taking into account the new routes announced, but only increasing the frequency for certain existing flights and introducing charter flights.
At Iasi Airport, four different companies operate, the number of flights to and from Iasi reaching 24, of which 19 are international and five domestic. At the same time, we are conducting negotiations to attract new companies to Iasi and we are continuing, in parallel, the steps to increase connectivity with other important cities: Frankfurt, Athens, Dublin, Warsaw, Zagreb.
