TAROM Company celebrates 59 years of activity
With a past that spans more than half a century, the history of the Romanian National Air Transport Company begins with the development of the aeronautical industry, an area in which Romania was noted by Aurel Vlaicu, Traian Vuia and Henri Coandă.
In the year 1920, in Romania, one of the first commercial lines in the world was created, CFRNA - the Franco-Romanian Air Navigation Company, which was also the first airline - in the history of aviation - with trans-continental operation.
In 1926, the company reorganized and changed its name to CIDNA - the International Air Navigation Company, so that, in 1930, it changed its name again, becoming the National Company LARES - Romanian Airline Operated by the State.
Year 1945 brings a new reorganization and LARES is replaced by TARS - Romanian - Soviet Air Transport, which was subordinated to the Romanian and the Soviet government, but whose personnel were also selected from those who had worked for LARES.
After another reorganization, LARES changes its name and becomes, on 18 September 1954, TAROM, Romanian Air Transport. The company then had a fleet of Soviet production aircraft Lisunov Li 2 and Ilyushin II - 14.
In 1966, TAROM made the first flight across the Atlantic, and in 1969 added a world premiere in the track record: the Romanian IL 18 plane with the TAROM marks traveled over 50 for thousands of kilometers around the world in less than 80 flight hours. The aircraft had 65 passengers on board.
Starting with 1973 “long courier” aircraft are purchased and new trans-continental lines open in New York and Beijing. The transport capacity of TAROM was then ten times higher than the year the company was founded.
In 25 June 2010, The National Romanian Air Transport Company TAROM becomes a member of the SkyTeam Alliance, a historical event that marks the entry of the national company into a new era of its existence.
Upon joining SkyTeam, TAROM switched to the Flying Blue loyalty program - created and operated by Air France and KLM. Currently, this program has over 15 million members worldwide.
Currently, the National Company operates in the summer season 2013, 42 of external destinations and 9 domestic destinations covering countries in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.
From June 2010 is a member of the SkyTeam Alliance, from 1993 a member of the International Air Carriers Association (IATA), and from 2000 is a member of the European Airlines Association (AEA).
