The aeronautical industry in Romania could register losses that exceed 20 million euros over the three days during which air traffic and airport activity were affected.

The National Air Transport Company TAROM registered losses amounting to about 2.2 billion euros on Saturday and Sunday, days during which air traffic was halted almost completely in Romania. Likewise, ROMATSA, which coordinates the air traffic, lost 700,000 euros over the two days when the air space was shut, according to the statements made by an official of the Ministry of Transports.

Likewise, airports lost almost seven million euros, Otopeni Airport in Bucharest, the largest airport in Romania, registering losses of about 400,000 euros during the weekend. Taking into consideration the traffic as well as the share TAROM holds on the air market, the other operators also registered losses of about seven million euros on the Romanian market.

According to Agerpres, if we add the losses on Friday, April 16, then the losses could exceed 20 million euros. The entire Romanian air space was shut starting on Saturday, April 17, at 6:00 pm, local hour, due to the volcanic ash cloud caused by the eruption in Iceland and was partly opened again on Monday morning at 9:00 am.
