Flights From Bucharest
For those looking to leave the lovely Romanian capital city, two international airports are available. Flights from Bucharest are available at either Henri Coanda International Airport located about 10 from the city center at 224 E, Calea Bucure?tilor, Otopeni, Ilfov, or at Aurel Vlaicu International Airport, which serves VIP passengers and lies closer to the center of town at only five miles away on 40, ?oseaua Bucharest Ploie?ti, district 1, Buchares. Henri Coanda is serviced by major commercial airlines such as Olympic Air, Austrian Airlines, Air France or British Airways while Aurel Vlaicu attracts private and chartered planes. Seats on flights originating from Henri Coanda can usually be booked through Orbitz.com.
Parking at Henri Coanda Airport
There are two parking areas available at Henri Coanda located in front of the terminal. Long-term parking begins at about $11 a day, with the per-day costs lowering with three or more days. Short-term parking is about $0.85 for 30 minutes at the arrivals terminal.
Transportation to the Airports
Transportation to catch your flight at Henri Conada can be secured in several ways. A direct train service is available from the Bucharest North railway station to the airport's train station at a cost of about $1.70, with a shuttle bus providing transportation from the airport station to the departures and arrivals hall at the airport itself. If you'd prefer to take the bus however, you can catch the 783 route from the city center, which takes about 45 minutes to reach the airport and costs approximately $2. Taxis are also available to provide a ride from anywhere within the city, with the cost dependent on your origin location. The smaller Aurel Vlaicu is serviced by bus routes 131, 335 and 783, as well as the city's taxis.
Breakfast Before Leaving
A quick breakfast can be had at the Henri Coanda International Airport, before heading off on one of the available flights from Bucharest, either at the Bell Vue or at the World News Café, both located in the airport's public area. If you have time to eat before reaching the airport, however, the Grand Café Galleron located just east of Piata Revolutiei offers an all-day breakfast service.
