TAROM, the Romanian national carrier, has signed a firm contract for the purchase of four A318 aircraft with CFM 56 engines. It was back in 1992, that the Airbus A310 became the first wide-body to be operated by the Bucharest-based airline. Now, nearly 12 years on, Tarom has opted for the newest and smallest member of the Airbus single-aisle family to help it increase passenger capacity in the 100-seater category. With deliveries scheduled between end 2006 and end 2007, the airline, which operates domestic and international flights from Bucharest, plans to use its A318 aircraft specifically on medium haul routes in Europe

Tarom firmed this contract back in April, and confirmed the engine selection at Farnborough last month.

Just a short question: Should we consider the Boeing 707 as widebody? If so, then the B707 was the first widebody of Tarom, followed by the A310 in 1992.

The 707 is single-aisle, and thus considered a narrowbody.

The Boeing 707 is definitely not a widebody. It's fuselage diameter is identical to that of the Boeing 727, 737 and 757 and is narrower than that of the A318s Tarom is ordering.

Anyway, good news for Tarom. I have a slogan of theirs as my signature.  Laugh out loud
