‘Transylvania’ Airport in Targu Mures has reopened after one year and a half. Runway rebuilt for RON 57m
‘Transylvania’ Airport in targu Mures has been reopened on Monday, after one year and a half, during which the runway has been completely rebuilt. The inaugural flight was made by a charter flight to Antalya, hotnew.ro informs.
“We have kept our word and we have cut down the deadline when the airport was closed. It should have been done 20 years ago. Now we’ve succeeded to rebuild the take off/landing runway. We’ve received the authorization at 9.00h and the first plane has landed at 10.00h,” Peter Ferencs, Chairman of Mures County Council, has said.
The rebuilding costs amounted to RON 56.7 million, VAT included, of which 85% are governmental funds, the rest from the state budget.
Before the airport was closed for modernization, the runway’s carrying capacity was of 45 units, now the capacity is of more than 70 units, allowing large aircraft to land.
The Targu Mures Airport was built in 1968 and no important modernisation works have taken place since.
