"Aurel Vlaicu" Bucharest-Baneasa International Airport could close its gates to passenger flights during the NATO Summit held in Bucharest at the beginning of April, according to the airport's general manager, Stefan Mladin.

The Summit will take place between April 2 and 4.

The closing of the airport for passenger flights was debated today together with Transportations Minister Ludovic Orban, according to Mladin.

Mladin did not received any official letter concerning the discussed measure, so details about what will happen to the passenger flights have not been decided so far. The airport could be closed for security reasons and to allow the aircrafts which come for the Summit to land without turbulences in Bucharest, Mladin added.

Civil flights could be canceled or moved to Romania's main airport in Otopeni, Henri Coanda, the official said.

Henri Coanda's leading board does not know yet what changes will take place during the NATO Summit, according to the airport's PR manager, Valentin Iordache. "If Baneasa airport closes down, it does not necessarily mean all flights will be moved to Otopeni" he said.
