A new railway line connecting Bucharest’s main railway station Gara de Nord to the Henri Coanda International Airport has been inaugurated over the weekend. Trains depart every 40 minutes with a one-way trip taking about 20 minutes. The price of a one-way ticket is RON 4 (around €0.82).
A total of 72 trains connect the Romanian capital’s airport with the city centre daily. Trains are operated by state company CFR Calatori and private operators Regio Calatori and Transferoviar Calatori.
This railway connection was one of the requirements Bucharest had to meet to host Euro 2020 matches which were postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The project included the construction of almost 3 km of double-track railway and a 1.5 km viaduct over the DN1 road.
In the coming decade, the airport is also planned to be connected to the Gara de Nord station by a new metro line.
