Recommendations for passengers who have flights from Bucharest: to be present at the airport at least 3 hours before take-off time.
The estimated increase in the number of passengers on the international departures flow, up to 100% compared to the previous period, imposed measures to increase the processing capacity at Henri Coandă Airport. Thus, all check-in counters as well as all security control filters and passport control counters are open and operational on the departure stream.
Recommendations for passengers who have flights from Bucharest
At the same time, the airport administrator, CN Aeroporturi București, asked the airlines and handling agents to make the necessary efforts - especially by providing sufficient staff - for the fast processing of passengers and ensuring a smooth traffic at the airport.
We call on all passengers to comply with the measures to combat the CoVid-19 pandemic applicable at the airport, including those regarding the distance and wearing of a protective mask.
Present at the airport at least 3 hours before take-off time.
We strongly advise passengers to arrive at the airport in advance - at least 3 hours before take-off time - and to have all the necessary travel documents, as required by the airline and based on the rules of entry in the country of destination (ticket airplane, identity card / passport, test / vaccination certificates, PLF QR code, etc.).
We also ask passengers to show patience and understanding for the efforts of airport staff. Authorities in many countries of destination require, in check-in, the verification of medical documents in addition to the usual ones (IC / passport and plane ticket), which makes the duration of these formalities significantly extended.
And the flow of arrivals continues to record high traffic values, similar to those before Christmas. Consequently, in order to reduce the time to verify documents upon entry into the country, the measures announced in the previous days are maintained - supplementing the airport staff, the DSP but also the Border Police and Gendarmerie, using the charter flow to maximize capacity, sequential disembarkation of passengers at peak hours.
Most airports in Europe and around the world are facing a similar situation during this period, with the Winter Holidays being one in which people traditionally travel the most.
