TAROM has a new general manager: Cătălin Radu Prunariu, the son of the only Romanian astronaut, Dumitru Prunariu.
The company says that the change comes amid the acutest crisis of the airline sector in its history following the Covid pandemic in the past year, particularly on the passenger transport, which has also affected Tarom.
“Despite all these, the national airline has managed to survive the first year of crisis, especially due to the adjustment of the operations and due to seizing new opportunities on the irregular flights segment,” reads a company press release.
The new GM Cătălin Prunariu plans “to enforce and enhance an efficient and sustainable operating pattern by adjusting the company to the airline market, both at national and European level”.
“Concluding the staff and organisation restructuring, the renewal of the aircraft fleet, the financial reform, making the commercial and marketing activities more efficient, as well as the extensive digitization are the major goals for relaunching the company“, reads a message by Cătălin Prunariu.
