Another year has passed with the pandemic, and the airports have drawn a line. 2021 was a better year than 2020, but the figures are well below the results recorded in 2019, the last full pre-COVID year.
Romania's regional airports have suffered the most due to travel restrictions. Airlines suspended relatives, canceled flights, closed bases and withdrew planes. In all this pandemic context, the passengers suffered the most.
