The only company that operates regular flights from Brasov airport threatens to withdraw

​Dan Air, the only company that operates regular flights from the new Brașov – Ghimbav airport, could take the decision to suspend air flights, after a series of incidents also related to the airport’s limited schedule, Bună Ziua Brașov local newspaper reports. The decision will be announced on Tuesday.

Dan Air started operating flights as of June 15 to destinations in Germany, Spain, Belgium and the UK. On June 19, the company announced new destinations: Madrid, Rome, Valencia and Malaga.

The manager of Dan Air, Matt Ian David, said on Monday, June 26, for BizBraşov.ro, that at this moment the company’s intentions are to suspend flights from Ghimbav Airport. “There are three reasons that lead us to this solution – the lack of the maintenance organization (which could have intervened in time after the incident on Friday, when a plane flying to London suffered a bird ingestion, putting the lives of the passengers at risk – n. r.), the lack of an anti-bird system (Ghimbav Airport does not have such a system which is cheap and can be installed in a few days, which could have made the incident on Friday not exist – n. ed.) , but also the elimination of the hostility of the air traffic controllers of ROMATSA (who on Saturday preferred to keep the plane coming from Madrid in flight, even though there was a storm over Brasov, putting the passengers’ lives at risk – ed.)”, declared Mattian David for BizBraşov.

A decision regarding the cancellation of the flights from and to Brasov will be made on Tuesday, said Dan Air manager, when the board will meet to find solutions to the problems that have arisen during the flights so far. “In any case, even if we suspend the operation of flights from Brasov, we will return to the airport in Ghimbav when these problems are solved,” David said.

The director of the Braşov – Ghimbav International Airport Autonomous Authority, Alexandru Anghel, was taken by surprise by the Dan Air company’s announcement of the suspension of flights from the Braşov airport, announcing they “will analyze the situation and come back in the coming days with a point of view”.

As for other scheduled flights to fly from Brasov, Anghel says that negotiations are currently underway with several companies. “Until now, the airlines were not sure of its opening date. Negotiations with an airline generally take about two years to be able to allocate aircraft for new flights,” the AIBG director also said.
