The Bucharest-Beijing route, announced by TAROM, was postponed until August
TAROM will resume flights to China in August, and will stop two weekly flights on the Bucharest-Beijing route, AFP sources within the airline.
This would be the second postponement, after that the route was initially announced for the end of March 2014. Then came the first postponement, rumors indicating the launch of the route somewhere in June 2014, and now it has been postponed until August. As the new CA TAROM shows, I have the impression that the Bucharest-Beijing route will not be launched in August either. It will remain a beautiful dream. In my opinion, Romania needs a direct route Bucharest - Beijing, but TAROM does not think it has the power and logistics needed at this time to support this route.
Returning to the TAROM situation, it is not too rosy. On May 7, 2014, the new Board of Directors was appointed and a control over the activity of the Belgian Christian Heinzmann, CEO of TAROM, is announced. In conclusion, Sova politicized TAROM in the interests of the current government. You know the saying, "Get the hell out of here, but stay with you"? It applies perfectly.
And I return to my first article written for ANAT magazine, in November 2012 - TAROM, Flaps Up!
