Sibiu County Council supports with 1,79 million lei Sibiu International Airport
Sibiu County Council approved, during the extraordinary meeting on Monday, July 6, 2020, the supplement with the amount of 1.790.000 lei for the Autonomous Administration Sibiu International Airport in order to cover the expenses related to non-economic activities such as:
- payment of salaries
- security services
- security equipment maintenance services
- the fee to the Romanian Civil Aeronautical Authority
This operating deficit was registered by Sibiu Airport due to the limitation of air passenger traffic due to the pandemic generated by SARS-Cov-2.
Thus, the amount allocated by the Sibiu County Council in 2020 for the operating expenses related to non-economic activities increased from 2 million lei to 3,79 million lei.
"Together with my fellow county councilors, I immediately accepted the request submitted by the Airport management to fully finance the expenses for the non-economic activities of the Airport, a possibility for which we have a legal basis, the amount being provided from the local budget of Sibiu County.
For us, Sibiu International Airport is a strategic objective and we are concerned to identify together the best solutions for its operation and development ", said Daniela Cîmpean, president of Sibiu County Council.
