Romania's airline Tarom acquires last two Airbus 318-111 from 2006 order, pays EUR 40m eachPublish date: 12-02-2008
Romania's state-owned airline Tarom spent 80 million euros to purchase the last two Airbus 318-111 planes of the four ordered two years ago, in a bid to increase fleet and introduce more flights according to the demand, spokesman Madalin Tudor said.
The company acquired the first two planes at the end of 2006, he said, noting the company's fleet currently counts 21 planes, four Boeing 737-300, four Boeing 737-700, seven ATR 42-500, four Airbus A318 and two Airbus A310.
Tarom forecasts the number of passengers this year will stand at 2.38 million people, a 20-25 percent hike versus the past year, when 1.9 million people used the company to fly.
At the beginning of December last year the government decided cut funds initially destined to cover the purchase of the two planes.
