In the context of warnings of heatwave and heightened thermal discomfort, issued for this period by the National Meteorological Administration, CFR Călători is making sustained efforts to keep in circulation all rolling stock units constructively equipped with air conditioning installations.

The entire fleet of railway vehicles is checked from a technical point of view - functionally before leaving for the race, to avoid breakdowns along the way. In order to keep the air-conditioning installations in operation, additional measures have been arranged for the maintenance of the air-conditioning installations in the revisions of the wagons that make up the train sets, as well as the accompanying of wagon electricians in certain time intervals, when there are heat waves or other weather phenomena summer specific extremes.

However, on days with scorching outside temperatures (often even above 50-55 degrees C in the sun) that are registered at the level of the rail and the box of the rolling stock, but also due to the opening of the windows along the way, the air conditioning installations risk can no longer provide cooling and operate in ventilation mode.

Under the conditions of using the entire fleet of technical rolling stock available, especially on the routes with the highest traffic requests, in order to have a predictability of the transport demand and in order to adapt the transport capacity to the number of seats requested, CFR Călători recommends passengers to plan their journey in advance, to use all the trains made available in the schedule of a day's traffic and to procure their travel IDs in advance, using all the available channels in this regard.
