Arriving in Bucharest by plane

International Airport: Otopeni, aka Henri Coandă — International, airport code is OTP or BUH for all Bucharest airports. Henri Coandă airport is located 10 Km North from the city entrance.

Transport to the city area from the airport:

After you check out your luggage, you can go to the exit and :

  • take a taxi to your hotel
    A taxi must be ordered from a dedicated terminal screen installed in the airport. You can select the taxi company and the price/km (all of them should be approximately 1.5 RON/km). Once selected, you must get in front of the building and look for the car you ordered (taxi company and the number on the car — not the registration number!), and show the ticket to the taxi driver. In case the taxi selected takes another passenger by mistake, or does not wait for you, just order another one from the same terminal. Taking other offerings as a taxi to the city, other than you ordered from the terminal, is not recommended.
  • take public transportation
    RATB, lines 780 (To Gara Basarab — train station), or 783 (to Piata Unirii — City center).
  • Rent a car (expensive! unless with a local company, but not highly recommended).
