Tarom To Acquire A- 318!?

Mon Jun 02, 2003 5:55 am

Although is not yet officially announced, it is rumored that Romanian Government has given its green line to Tarom Romanian Airlines to acquire four Airbus 318 - 106 seat configuration - and two Super Puma passenger helicopters. As far as I know two others B737-700 are scheduled to enter Tarom's fleet in November and December 2003.

Surprising swing toward Airbus - 100 seat aircraft if you ask me. The Super Puma as a passenger aircraft for Tarom that's something new although they could be very useful for small heliports on and around Cartpathian Mountains.
