TAROM will not resume flights to the USA
According to the statements made by Traian Băsescu, we will have to be patient about the direct flights Bucharest - USA performed by TAROM.
"I will be very open. As far as I know now: no! Because TAROM was flying using two Airbus 310 aircraft, which, due to the small number of seats for this relationship, had 180 seats, and due to the extraordinary competition in transatlantic transport, between Europe and US airports, it could not compete. The race on the US, each of them, bringing losses of tens of thousands of dollars to the race, millions of dollars annually. TAROM is a company that is no longer subsidized and must look at its own survival "
, said Basescu in Chicago, at a meeting with the Romanians from the US, who wanted to know if there are any chances to resume these TAROM flights. (inform Mediafax)
I think TAROM needs to be privatized and then make new acquisitions of aircraft. For profitable flights on routes to the United States, the national airline must own high-capacity aircraft capable of transatlantic flights. Currently, flights to the United States stop in London, Rome, Amsterdam or Paris and are operated by airlines such as Delta Air Lines, KLM - Air France, British Airways, etc.
