Brasov - Ghimbav International Airport, a project challenged by some and praised by others, is beginning to take shape. For the time being only on paper and on the drawing boards of the architect Dorin Stefan.

At a press conference held Wednesday, Brasov officials presented the first images with the future terminal of the Brasov-Ghimbav International Airport. The conference was attended by: architect Dorin Stefan; President of the Brasov County Council, Adrian Veștea; the mayor of Brașov, George Scripcaru; the president of the Covasna County Council, Tamas Sandor.

Brasov - Ghimbav International Airport

In addition to the ones listed above, several county and local councilors from Brasov took part in the presentation. Plus the prefect of Brasov County, Marian Rasaliu. That is, almost all the foam of the politicians and representatives of Brasov.

We cannot express ourselves about art and architecture. We can say that the architecture presented does not look bad, it even looks futuristic. The building of the terminal will have 11.000 of square meters. It will be a combination of concrete and glass. The roof will also be made of glass, provided with photovoltaic panels, these having the role of contributing to the reduction of expenses with electricity.

The architect Dorin Stefan mentioned that everything can be done with an average cost of 2000 € / square meter. And the terminal is designed to process peak hours up to 3 passenger 180 aircraft.

In a developed country with land infrastructure developed, an airport like Brasov - Ghimbav would not be built. It would have been useless. But we live in Romania, the country where the authorities are not able and willing to build an expressway / expressway between Bucharest and Brașov. As between Brasov and Cluj / Târgu Mureș there are not very high-speed roads.

For Brasov, a very good alternative would be Sibiu International Airport. But it is better to spend a few million Euros and make an airport at the foot of Tampa. It remains to be seen when the new Brasov - Ghimbav International Airport will be ready.

    I read the comments regarding the airport and I can't disagree more with its author. At the time that I was involved with the project, some 10 years ago, our study showed that Brasov region would attract 450,000 -750,000 tourists a year. This number has now reached over 1 million. I am not including business travel to Germany, Benelux and France of which there will be plenty as a result of economic development in the last 10 years.
    In conclusion, the airport will be resounding economic success and I regret not being part of it.

    “In a developed country with land infrastructure developed, an airport like Brasov - Ghimbav would not be built. "
    Mr. Rusi, this reasoning does not honor you. Think again. Brasov's potential for air traffic is 4-5 times greater than Sibiu's. In other words, if 10 passengers from Sibiu and 40 from Brasov are on a plane, where would it be best to take off? It doesn't matter which airport is already built, it's about profitability, not social protection.
    AIBG will be ready in 2021, there will be commercial flights, charter and cargo sufficient to cross the profitability threshold after 3 years of operation. If you are really passionate about commercial aviation, it would be logical to support the construction of the first airport in Romania in the last 50 years, not to join the chorus of "worried" about the health of the goat over the fence.

      We do not oppose its construction. And in the current context of land infrastructure, Brasov airport will be a gateway to Prahova Valley.

      However, if we had the Bucharest - Brasov highway, this airport would not have had the same efficiency.

      Keep in mind that over 70% of those who reach the Prahova Valley are Romanians, and they will not fly from Otopeni to Brasov.

        I also encountered this pattern: "it is not profitable to fly from Otopeni to Brasov". Who cares?
        I do not think that the issue of AIBG trafficking on the part of Bucharest is even a second. There are thousands of foreign tourists who do not come to Brasov because of the infrastructure (no, they would not come from OTP on the highway), as well as large companies that give up investments in the area (Apple, Mercedes and others) for the same reason. True, the lack of motorway makes the airport even more attractive. But even in the presence of the freeway, the airport would still be out on "4-5 years. It's about 800.000 - 1.000.000 passenger traffic per year, which AIBG will do, with or without highways. I would surmise, the traffic would also be realized if Brasov had a port with exit to the Black Sea. 🙂

        This is why the airport is made, not to reach Bucharest in Poiană faster.

          Okay, it's funny. I will keep your comment and respond when the airport is ready to understand who cares.

        2. Sorin Rusi says

          Do you know how to calculate a route and how to open air routes? Can the Brasov catchment area collect 10-20 for thousands of passengers in one season for 2-3 regular routes?

          1. Nic Dobre says

            English word: "Let's agree to disagree". And to return to this comment after the first, third and fifth year of operation. We will then draw the line and see if it was a Transylvanian with a rich imagination or an error of estimation on your part.
