Tarom, Romanian Air Transport, is the national airline of Romania, carrying its flag in the image of the airline. It is based out of the capital city’s airport in Bucharest, Henri Coandă International Airport. There is scheduled service to destinations in Europe, Africa, and the Middle-East.
Tarom was founded in September of 1954. Six years later the airline had service to almost all European countries. In 1966 Tarom flew for the first time across the Atlantic Ocean to New York City. A decade later they flew in the other direction and introduced service to Beijing. In this same year, 1974, Tarom flew to Sydney via Calcutta. Until 1990 Tarom was flying soviet-made jets and it wasn’t until 1990 that they were able to obtain Western ones. By 1993 however they were flying across the Atlantic with an Airbus, the largest passenger airplane in the world.
In the 1990s the airline registered a profit loss of $68 million. Now they have initiated a program to reverse this and restore profit. Tarom concentrates now on its routes from Bucharest and there are codeshare agreements in place for their international routes. In 2008 Air France endorsed Tarom to become a member of the SkyTeam associate program which should take place by 2010.
