History of Timișoara Traian Vuia Airport

In 1935, Romania’s first airport was built in Moșnita Veche, south-east of Timişoara, not far from its current location. During the Second World War, this port was also used by the German Air Force.

In 1960, the first administrative building of the airport was built on its present site near the village of Ghiroda, followed in 1964 by the reception building for domestic flights. Between 1975 and 1980 the runway was extended from 2500 metres to 3500 metres and the International Terminal, control tower, VIP lounge and administration building were inaugurated. Between 1980 and 1990, air traffic started on domestic flights (to Bucharest and Constanta) and also on international flights (to Frankfurt am Main, New York and Chicago). A warehouse for air cargo was opened in 1998. In 2002, the departure hall for domestic flights was modernised. The airport has been named Traian Vuia since 2003. Also in 2003, a terminal for transit traffic became operational and the airport became an air traffic hub, connecting cities in Romania with airports in Italy and Germany.

In 2004, the international terminal was modernised and expanded. In 2005, a feasibility study was carried out for the development of the airport between 2006 and 2015. Due to the increasing volume of flights, the apron area was expanded and a new car park was built in 2006. This was followed by the expansion of the international terminal in 2007. Work on Terminal 1 for non-Schengen flights was completed in 2010. In 2012, the runway was renewed with asphalt and runway lighting. In addition, systems for landing categories CAT IIIa (290) to the east and CAT II (110) to the west were put into operation in 2015.
