First time flying Blue Air; great job! Thank you.
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 BucureÅŸtilor, 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, Åžoseaua Bucharest PloieÅŸti, 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.
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 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.
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 CafÃ©, both located in the airport's public area. If you have time to eat before reaching the airport, however, the Grand CafÃ© Galleron located just east of Piata Revolutiei offers an all-day breakfast service.
When you book bargain flights to Cluj-Napoca with Orbitz.com, you will fly into Cluj-Napoca International Airport. The airport is located in the SomeÅŸeni neighborhood, about five miles from the city center. It is the largest airport in Transylvania, which is in the northwestern corner of Romania. Many airlines fly into the airport, including Wizz Air, Lufthansa and Aegean Airlines.
If you are planning to drive around Romania, rental cars are available at the airport; with Orbitz.com, you can reserve a car ahead of time. If you prefer to take a bus, Route 8 stops outside of the airport terminal and goes to the main square in the center of town. The bus runs every 30 minutes and the ride takes about 30 minutes. The fare is less than $2. Taxis are readily available at the airport, and a ride into the city usually costs less than $10.
Cluj-Napoca experiences mild winters and warm, humid summers. In the hottest months of June, July and August, temperatures rise to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. In the winter, temperatures drop to about 20 degrees Fahrenheit in December and January.
While Clug-Napoca isn't as showy as some of the other cities in Transylvania, it offers plenty to do for travelers.
