Being part of the group of the airlines belonging to Soviet Bloc states, TAROM operated Soviet-design Li-2, Ilyushin Il-14, Ilyushin Il-18, Ilyushin Il-62, Antonov An-24, and Tupolev Tu-154 aircraft. An exception was made when, in 1974, TAROM acquired Boeing 707 aircraft for its long haul operations, and British Aircraft BAC One Eleven in 1968 for European and Middle East destinations. In 1978 a contract was signed with the UK to manufacture the BAC One Eleven near Bucharest.
