23 30.979

We come with less pleasant news for those waiting for flights to / from Romania. Conformable DECISION no. 394 of 18 May 2020 on the declaration of the state of alert and the measures applied during it to prevent and combat the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we found that flights from / to Romania are suspended throughout the alert period.

Specifically, according to Annex 3, we have the following: Suspension of flights by economic operators from aviation to Italy; ❌Spania; ❌Germania; ❌Franţa; ❌Austria; ❌Belgia; ❌Elveţia; ❌SUA; ❌United Kingdom; ❌Olanda; ❌Turcia; ❌Iran and from these countries to Romania for all airports in Romania, according to art. 37 of Law no. 55/2020.

According to HG, this decision applies throughout the alert state, which will expire on June 16, at 21:59 UTC. Article 4 of Annex 3, which mentions the suspension of flights, does not have a defined period.

ROMATSA issued a NOTAM* restricting flights until 16 June 2020 - A1478 / 2020.

NOTAM - notification distributed by means of telecommunications containing information on the condition or modification of an installation, a service, a procedure or a danger to air navigation, the knowledge of which is absolutely necessary for the flight attendants.

Flights from Romania are suspended

Approved by DECISION no. 394 of May 18, 2020, published in the Official Gazette, Part I, no. 410 of May 18, 2020.

Annex 3, Article 4: In conditions art. 5 para. (3) lit. d) of Law no. 55/2020, the following measures shall be established: 1. Suspension of flights by aviation operators to Austria, Belgium, the Swiss Confederation, France, Germany, Iran, Italy, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Spain, the United States of America and Turkey, and from these countries to Romania for all airports in Romania, according to art. 37 of Law no. 55/2020. The law can be studied at the following link: http://legislatie.just.ro/Public/DetaliiDocumentAfis/225879.

Let's hope that the law will be amended in Parliament soon or an emergency ordinance will be approved to amend law 394/2020 and thus resume flights.

    The official press release of 15 May 2020 clearly states that flights are suspended for a period of 14 days from the time of the press release, ie until 29 May.
    If flights were suspended for the entire period of the alert state, there would be no need to specify this date.
    It was simply reported that the flights had been suspended until 16 June.
    So your article is just fake news, and being a fake article please delete it.

    1. Sorin Rusi says

      Yes, only today ROMATSA gave NOTAM to suspend flights until June 16. In the GD, approved by the parliament, Article 4 does not have a defined period, consequently it applies throughout the alert state.

      1. Marian says

            When the authorities approve the flights. On June 17, new flight restrictions were applied until July 17… But there are some explanations in this article> https://airlinestravel.ro/oficial-zborurile-spre-spania-italia-belgia-olanda-franta-marea-britanie-turcia-au-fost-suspendate.html

      If you have something to get there with and if the Asian countries receive you 🙂

    Cite NOTAM and the ROMATSA article.
    I searched too and there is nothing you said.

    All notams do not refer to the suspension until June 16.

      What does the NOTAM say? Based on the decision of the state authorities, flight restrictions apply from 26 05 2020, time 13> 36 UTC until 16.06.2020 20:59 UTC.

  4. Alex says

    Good evening. Do you know if this also applies to flights with connections? For example: for a flight Luxembourg -> Munich -> Bucharest on June 15, is Luxembourg or Germany considered as a reference point? Thanks

    1. Sorin Rusi says

      Well, I don't think you have flights from Germany to Romania. If the suspension is maintained until June 16, at 23:59, it means that all regular / frequent flights will be suspended between Romania and Germany and then you do not have the connecting flight to Romania…

  5. […] BREAKING NEWS: Flights from Romania are suspended for the entire period of… […]

  6. […] ImperatorTravel.ro and AirlinesTravel.ro, yesterday Eurocontrol extended the flight ban between Romania and several European countries. [...]

  7. Sorin Lita says

    And what does the Otopeni website for May 28, 2020 display? Flight from UK, Amsterdam, Madrid….? what are these?

    https://www.bucharestairports.ro/en/flight-schedule/departures

    1. Sorin Rusi says

      Those are charter / repatriation flights. There are no frequent-regular flights. Charter flights are made under the approval of the authorities in order to bring to Romania citizens of this country with all those conditions for entry into the country. Blue Air also sells tickets to Amsterdam, only to Dutch citizens, residents, those with special employment contracts, etc. Tarom also sells tickets to Spain under a certain regime… Details here https://airlinestravel.ro/zboruri-tarom-de-repatriere-din-spre-amsterdam-bruxelles-barcelona-si-madrid.html

    Hello, I have a rescheduling for the flight with Wizz Air, route Birmingham - Bucharest, on 18.06.2020. Do you have any idea how the flights will resume until that date? When and where do we find out? We find out from the authorities, this is the answer, I know… .only the time is very short and the date of 16.06 is so close to 18.06 when we should fly…: ((
