On 2 October 2017, following the certification audit carried out by the Romanian Civil Aeronautical Authority on 28-30 September 2017, Transylvania International Airport Tîrgu-Mureş received the aerodrome certificate. This certificate at European standards proves that the airport meets the requirements of Regulation (EU) No. 139/2014 of the European Commission laying down technical requirements and administrative procedures related to aerodromes.
The certificate was obtained as a result of a conversion process that consisted of employee training for the application of new European regulations, designing and drafting specific documentation, infrastructure works and qualitative and opportunity changes in the management system, all of which were complemented by a a very rigorous audit and evaluation program conducted by aeronautical inspectors of the Romanian Civil Aviation Authority.
During this year, the staff at Tîrgu-Mureş Airport performed all the necessary activities to meet the requirements imposed by the above Regulation. Thus, three working groups have been set up to prepare the necessary documentation and have taken the procedural steps on the three components, organization, operation and infrastructure.
The obtaining of this certificate was possible due to the fact that, throughout this year, the Mures County Council assumed both the national authorities and the European ones the necessary investments related to the airport runway and the adjacent investments , assumption without which we could not have fulfilled the conditions for granting this certification.
On October 3, the order to start the trackwork was issued. As of 4 October, the land management right was withdrawn and re-transmitted to the Mures County Council, so that Thursday, October 5, 2017, the site could be handed over to the builder.
At the end of the investments, Transilvania International Airport Tîrgu Mureş will operate at the optimal standards from the operational point of view and safety.
