Florin Susanu stays as Tarom interim general director, after his term has been extended. Official sources told local media that the Tarom managing board has extended Susanu’s mandate as interim until October 15.
Florin Susanu has been appointed in this position on August 21 after the previous general director Eugen Davidoiu had resigned. His mandate has been initially for only one month.
Eugen Davidoiu stated on September 19 at the hearings in the Chamber’s Committee for transport that Transports minister had asked for his resignation from the TAROM general director and that he had resigned although there was no reason to do it.
Davidoiu explained that Tarom had losses of RON 28.5 M when he took office in February 2017 and the losses mounted to RON 90-100 M and that losses were due to the fact that A310 aircrafts had been removed from the fleet at the end of 2016 without being replaced.
PM Tudose paid a visit to Tarom HQs on August 18 and after that he asked the Transports minister for explanations on the huge losses registered by the national flag carrier. Two days later, the PM’s control body started checks at Tarom.
