All clear now at Iasi Airport
Currently in the Iasi Airport functions the most modern passenger terminal of all regional airports.
The new passenger terminal operates from October 2001, and is able to process 150 passengers per hour for domestic flights and 100 passengers per hour for international flights using separate streams, separate waiting rooms for boarding. The arrival flow operates both domestic and foreign arrivals, allowing minimum awaiting time for country entry, and passengers baggage recovery.
In the late 2005 we purchased an ILS approach equipment able to maintain the airport operational during the low visibility conditions .
Currently, Iasi Airport is equipped with an NDB approach equipment assisted by a Precision Approach Radar, CAT I lighting with approach lights for Runways 15 and 33.
Also, we improved our ground support equipment with new elements, we provide a superior qualification to the staff dealing with the ramp activities and we have submitted for research the Handling Manual, at the IATA Handling Commission, to obtain accreditation to act as an authorized handling agent.
Passenger traffic and aircraft movements tend to double every year, and soon scheduled or charter international flights will result in even greater growth, especially following the opening of the Airport Travel Agency. It works as a ticket agency and a charter organizer in the same time. International flights operated directly from Iasi, will greatly increase the quality of local air transport.
Another future project is to build a cargo terminal, near the utility aviation hangar. This terminal will serve all the companies in the north-east of the country, it can process 50 tons of cargo per hour and its equipment can deal with general merchandise, with the perishable or dangerous cargo, except for the radioactive cargo.
