Main Airports in Romania

Most flights in Romania pass through Bucharest and the Bucharest Henri Coandă International Airport. Located 16.5 km (10.3 mi) from the center of the city, the airport sits on nearly 1,500 acres of land and is served by bus routes and the DN1 road. There is also an airport rail link to Bucharest North railway station, as well as a range of shops and amenities, including bars, restaurants, pharmacies, banks, ATMs, foreign exchanges, toilets, and a chapel.

Cluj International Airport is 9 km (5.6 mi) from the city of Cluj-Napoca. Also known as Avram Iancu Cluj International Airport, it is the second-busiest airport in Romania and the biggest in the Transylvania region, making it the destination of choice for travelers seeking to explore the region’s castles, history, and folklore. It is easy to get to the airport by car or bus and there are numerous basic amenities inside.

Other airports in Romania include Iași International Airport and Timișoara Traian Vuia International Airport. They are much smaller and serve far fewer passengers, but they still provide those passengers with basic amenities and are well-connected.

Before your Romanian flight—Preparation for Departure

Before departing for any Romanian flight, make sure you have some Leu. This is the currency of Romania, You can use Euros in some locations, but you shouldn’t expect to pay with Euros and will either need Leu or a debit/credit card.

Getting to Romanian airports should be easy, as they are accessible by bus and car, and you can also hop on a train if you’re going to the main airport in Bucharest.

Arrive at least a couple of hours before you depart, making sure you have time to check in your bag and go through security. Keep electronics out of your hand luggage, place medications (along with a prescription) in your hand luggage, and pay attention to signposts and warnings.

After your Romanian flight—after landing

If you didn’t change any Leu before you departed, you can change some at a foreign exchange when you land. You’ll need to go through passport control and then collect your bags, after which you can exchange some money before you leave.

If you have booked accommodation near the airport, you may have access to a shuttle bus. These are offered by many hotels near airports and they will get you to your hotel free of charge.

If not, there are shuttle buses that can take you to the nearby train station, as well as buses that will take you to your hotel for a small price.

Remember, whether you’re buying tickets for Romanian flights, buses, or trains, you can find everything you need on Omio.

Which airport do you fly into for Romania?

It depends on where you’re flying and who you’re flying with, as there are several international airports in Romania. For most travelers, however, the answer is Bucharest Henri Coandă International Airport, as it is the largest in the country and handles most of the incoming and outgoing flights.

Is Romania a cheap country for tourists?

As with all destinations, there are expensive locations and there are also expensive ways of doing things, such as sticking with 5-star hotels and tourist traps. But these are easy to avoid and with a little planning, Romania can be a very cheap country to visit. Look for free attractions, eat out at fast food chains and restaurants popular with locals, and check out the country’s supermarkets if you need to stock up on essentials.

Is it worth it to visit Romania?

Of course it is! There is a lot to see and do here. It is often overlooked as a tourist destination in Europe, but it has a unique charm and it’s well worth exploring.

Is Romania a safe country?

Yes, Romania is a safe country for tourists, but that doesn’t mean that you can let your guard down. As a tourist, you are more likely to be targeted by scammers and pickpockets. That’s true for all countries, not just Romania. It’s important, therefore, to protect your valuables and don’t trust suspicious strangers.

What is the best time to visit Romania?

Romania is a beautiful country in the summer. It’s not unbearably hot and maintains a great climate throughout. This is also a good time to see the natural beauty of the country, whether you’re walking through its cities, strolling in its towns, or hiking the hills. However, summer can be more expensive. If you want to save money, consider booking in the fall or even in the winter. It’s a lot colder, sure, but it’s also a lot cheaper and there is still a lot to see and do.

What is the cheapest time to visit Romania?

The winter is always the cheapest time to visit Romania. February in particular is a very cheap month, and that applies both to Romanian flights and accommodation. Prices usually increase in the summer when the weather picks up, the kids are off school, and everyone is planning their vacations. You may also see a spike in prices and popularity around Halloween, because who doesn’t like the idea of visiting the home of Dracula on the spookiest day of the year?

How many days in Romania is enough?

It depends on which part of the country you want to see. We recommend several weeks if you plan on taking trains and buses to see as much of Romania as you can. If you’re visiting a single city or town, however, you can see a lot within a few days. But of course, like everywhere else, more is better, as that extra time means you can go off the beaten track and explore areas that are popular with the locals and not just the tourists.
