Bucharest, September 18th 2016: TAROM celebrates 62 years of existence with its passengers
September 18th 2016: TAROM, the National Company of Air Transport, turns 62 years of existence today, celebrated with its passengers.
With 43 offered destinations, TAROM provides its passengers air transport services at international standards, starting from the ticket booking, by means of multiple distribution channels, continuing with ground services, different menus and comfort on board of its aircraft, until landing on main airports from Europe and other corners of the world.
TAROM is and will remain a path breaker – it was one of the first commercial airline companies from the world, founded in 1920 under the name of CFRNA (Compagnie franco-roumaine de navigation aérienne) and the first airline company with trans-continental operation. TAROM was also the first airline company which, in global premiere, made the world tour in 80 hours of flight. And the recent history tells us that TAROM was the first company outside Turkey which landed on Ataturk Airport, following the unhappy events on July 15th 2016.
“TAROM Company has always provided travel opportunities even in exceptional situations, however without making a deduction of the most important guiding principles: safety and comfort. This proves the respect for passengers and the wish to be with them whenever necessary. Therefore, TAROM remains one of the most important Romanian brands, a Romanian symbol, an airline company with tradition recognized in the entire world. At the celebration of 62 years, we wish that TAROM continues to be all there, from all points of view, so that our main objective remains the permanent improvement of provided services.”, declared the Managing Director, Dan Plaveti.
In the 62 years of existence, TAROM was the witness involved in the history started by the Romanian pioneers of global civil aviation and continued until now by the people with passion for flying.
“We owe thanks to our passengers for their choice and we also owe thanks to people dedicated to their profession, who work or worked along the time in this company”, added Dan Plaveti.
Therefore, TAROM thanks its passenger and is waiting for them on board of its aircraft, on today’s flights, September 18th 2016, with a cup of champagne.
