This is a great small international airport. Staff are very friendly and efficient. Everything is conveniently located in one hall. You can get a taxi or Uber ride right at the exit.

A very efficient security check, with state-of-the-art equipment. With it, there is no need to take electronic devices out of the bag. This speeds up the check very much. Checkpoint staff very professional and courteous. Slightly less so at the check-in desks. There are two check-in desks, but only one is open. Reason. Lack of staff. But the airline pays for two 🙂 Boarding efficient, voice announcements not very clear. Business lounge spacious but crowded. Very large selection of drinks and snacks. Not very sophisticated decor but very comfortable and friendly staff a big plus.

One of the best organized airport in this period. Even if traffic was at record levels as Untold festival finished one day before everything was running smoothly. Seeing the lane at security check I got scared as I didn't think I will pass in 2 hours, however in 20 minutes I was on the other side. Incredibil how such a small airport can cope with such a volume of people. On gate 3B they boarded 2 airplanes in less then 1 hour. If something is moving right this is one of the best examples. On things to upgrade I can mention smoking area but hopefully by the next trip in that airport I will quit smoking so... not that important.

The domestic terminal was absolutely awful. 2 full flights scheduled at the same time. Over 300 people on less than 60 seats. No options to buy beverages or a sandwich. Not even a vending machine. Just a closed business class lounge (despite there being no business clas on scheduled flights in Romania).The landside part is alright and the airport itself is close to the city with public transport available to/from downtown Cluj Napoca.

The airport offers a variety of domestic and international flights to major European destinations making it an important gateway for both business and leisure travelers as well as the most importantly Romanian expats working or living in Europe.

The airport was first established in 1932 but it wasn’t until the 1960s that it began to see significant growth in passenger traffic. In 2008, the airport underwent a major renovation and expansion project which included the construction of a new terminal building and an extended runway. The expansion allowed the airport to handle up to 2.5 million passengers per year whic is a significant increase from its previous capacity of 800,000. It was the only major airport around and the most of the people living around cities were using Cluj Napoca airport (this is still the case nowadays).

I know the biggest questions:)

Does Cluj Airport Has Free Wifi ? Yes. Cluj Airport wifi available free at the airport.

Oh! Second the most important question almost matter of life!

Yes! It also have free charging points at waiting areas.

The airport offers a range of facilities and services for passengersincluding restaurants, cafes, shops and duty-free store. There are also several lounges for premium passenger as well as a business center and conference rooms for those traveling for work. Well the reviews are mixed but I will make a post about it later. As said; the airport provides free Wi-Fi access throughout the terminal. There are ATMs and currency exchange offices available for those who need to withdraw or exchange money. However mind the commissions and exchange rates before dive in. It might be cheaper sometimes to use bank card if your bank is charging lower fees (check this too!)


Cluj International Airport is located approximately 9 kilometers east of Cluj-Napoca and there are several transportation options available for travelers. Taxis are readily available outside the terminal building waiting all day and night. There is also a bus service that connects the airport to the city center which is pretty convenient because the distance is not so far. Optionally several car rental companies have offices at the airport making it easy for travelers to rent a car and explore the surrounding area.
