Accidents and Incidents

On the 5th september 1986, at about 5 P.M., an Antonov 24RV aircraft departs Otopeni International Airport in Bucharest with full load, to Cluj-Napoca. When landing procedure began, one of the flight attendants, Aurelia Grigore, realized that the aircraft was landing with higher speed than it normaly would have to, and when the main landing gear touched ground, lifted back and did this on and on until the iarcraft stoped. The front of the aircraft was on fire. That's when she realized they had an emergency sittuation. Her flight collegue and her decided to start deboarding passengers. She opened the emergency exit and she let the stairs down, but the stairs weren't touching the ground because the front gear broke. She was helped by Emil Hosu, a famous actor. "He was one of the few people that didn't pannicked and helped us evacuate the aircraft in safety", confesses Aurelia Grigore. After evacuating the passengers they returned to help the pilots who were trapped in the cockpit. "The cockpit was on fire and we lost any faith that we could save them". The next moments were horrible for all passengers and flight crew. The aircraft was distroyed by flames and the pilots were still in there. After 10 minutes, they saw one of the copilots trying to escape on the window. "He told us his foot was stucked and that he couldn't get it out. We tryed to help him, but we couldn't. Finally he managed to get out of the aircraft on fire. He was completely burned, you couldn't even look at him. It was terrible. The other 2 pilots burned alive as we watched them, helpless". The copilot died also. He was transported at the ER but died the next day because of the burns. The authorities said that it was a malfunction at the equipment. In this accidents, the victims were the 3 pilots, no other people were injured.

In 2004 Tarom operated the following destinations from Cluj-Napoca International: Bucureşti, Frankfurt, Munich, Vienna and Milan (with Boeing 737 si ATR 42 aircrafts). Carpatair had direct flights to Timişoara and Budapest, but other destinations were also covered via Timişoara (Munich, Stuttgart, Dusseldorf, Rome, Ancona, Bologna, Treviso, Florence, Bergamo, Verona and Turin) with Saab 340 si Saab 2000 aircrafts. Clubair operated scheduled flights to Bologna and Verona.


In 2004, the airport opened a cargo terminal, and started major rapairing and extension for the runway and the boarding and deboarding platform. The airport manager declared that for 2005 a new terminal is considered. It's going to be bigger than the one existing now. This new terminal is going to be called "Schengen Terminal".
