'The airlines operating on the Aurel Vlaicu - Baneasa Airport can transfer their flights on the Henri Coanda Airport starting on March 25. The rates per passenger will increase by about 4-4.5 euros, according to our estimations, but the passenger services will significantly improve...,' Valentin Iordache said.
The airlines will pay an additional airport fee on the Otopeni Airport amounting to approximately 4.5 euros per passenger as compared with the Baneasa Airport (Bucharest), but the conditions will be much better than on Baneasa, the Bucharest Airport Company representatives maintain.
At present, several low-cost airlines operate on the Baneasa Airport, among which Blue Air, a Romanian company, Wizz Air from Hungary, German Wings, a Lufthansa division and Vueling, a Spanish company.
