Tulcea Airport seeks airlines for scheduled routes via public tender

Tulcea Airport, also known as Tulcea Danube Delta Airport, features a catchment area of 2.3 million people. Following a 12 million EUR investment the airport prides itself with a new state-of-the-art terminal and runway of 2,120 metres in length, ready to welcome potential airlines willing to fly to Milan, Madrid, Barcelona, London, Frankfurt and Paris.

Tulcea County Council and Tulcea Airport is thrilled to announce an invitation to airlines to take part in a public tender, as they seek to link the region to a number of European destinations, namely Milan, Madrid, Barcelona, London, Franfurt and Paris. These services are considered to be vital for the economic and social development of the region, which currently doesn’t feature any scheduled routes to/from its main gateway – Tulcea Airport.

Geographically, Tulcea County is located in the southern-eastern part of Romania, bordered by the Danube in the north and west as well as the Black Sea in the east. The region offers a multitude of historical sites and places of worship with high architectural value and heritage. As a matter of fact, Tulcea County includes the Danube Delta and Razim–Sinoe Lake Complex, which are part of the UNESCO world natural heritage. With very limited access due to the poor road and railway infrastructure, the main gateway to this region is Tulcea Airport which features a 2-hour driving time catchment area of 2.3 million people. Nowadays, the airport is served by charter and private services only; therefore, the development of scheduled links is a focal point for both Tulcea County Council and Tulcea Airport.

To ensure an even better visibility to this region, the local authorities are looking forward to connecting Tulcea with the following six destinations:

Destination (Country) Maximum Weekly Frequencies
Milan (Italy) 2
Madrid (Spain) 2
Barcelona (Spain) 2
London (UK) 2
Frankfurt (Germany) 2
Paris (France) 2
