Henri Coanda ranks 5th among European airports, air traffic highest rise in first 10 months

The Airports Council International ranked Henri Coanda International Airport in Bucharest among the first five European airports to have recorded the highest rise in air traffic in the first ten months of 2017, informs the Bucharest National Airport Company in a press release sent to AGERPRES.

According to the ranking released on Thursday, in the 10-25 million-passenger per year airport category, Henri Coanda Airport ranked fifth with a 16.7 percent increase in air traffic.

“Henri Coanda International Airport joined a firm growth trend, outperforming airports from Lisbon, Berlin, Brussels, Athens, Milan, Prague or Budapest. In order to achieve full potential, I have instituted as priorities the streamlining of the activity, the reconfiguration of investments and the swift unblocking of the airport’s development strategy, with a constant concern for safety and security. We have succeeded in record time, to optimize the services provided to passengers and to extend the processing capabilities so that the transit through Henri Coanda Airport be as rapid and comfortable as possible,” General Manager of the National Company Bucharest Airports (CNAB) Bogdan Mindrescu stated.

This year, CNAB accomplished one of the greatly important projects for the rehabilitation of the airport structure. Thus, in 2017, CNAB started and completed maintenance and repair works at the road structure of the no.1 landing/taking off runway of Henri Coanda International Airport and the aircraft taxiways. The works totaled a 67,228 square metres surface, of which 39,483 sqm on runway 1 and another 27,745 sqm for platforms and aircraft taxiways.
