Travel Guide

Bucharest has reasonable connections with most European capitals and with the largest cities in Romania, but it can be difficult to find a direct flight to Bucharest from outside of Europe or the Middle East. The city is also reached by a large number of low-costs flights, mainly from destinations in Italy and Spain as well as from some major cities in Germany, France, the UK, Ireland, Belgium, Hungary, Turkey, Austria, Israel etc.

If you travel from within Romania ,you should know that Romania's National airline operates scheduled flights between Bucharest and several cities within Romania: Iasi, Cluj, Oradea, Satu Mare, Sibiu, Targu Mures, Timisoara,Baia Mare,Suceava.

All scheduled flights, including those operated by low cost airlines, land at Henri Coandă International Airport (IATA: OTP) , located in Otopeni, 18 km north of downtown. Henri Coanda airport is often referred to as Otopeni on airline bookings, because of its location. It is the main hub for the Romanian flag carrier Tarom . All concessions inside the airport (shops, cafes, restaurants) are extremely expensive (everything is about twice more expensive than in the city).. Avoid exchanging money in the airport, exchange rates are 10-15% worse than what you would find in the city - you are advised to use an ATM in the lobby for immediate needs and exchange money downtown. 

Welcome to OTOPENI, at Henri Coandă International Airport! We are extremely happy that you landed safe and hope you had a nice flight.In order to meet you and have a great experience at Bucharest Summit events, you will have to break trough the heavy traffic of Bucharest(don’t get scared ,we are just kidding…or not) and get to downtown. Here we will be waiting for you at our venue hotel, Radisson BLU . Henri Coandă International Airport (OTP) is just 18 kilometers from the Radisson Blu Hotel, Bucharest.So,how do you get here?

Bucharest Summit Shuttle Bus

We will make sure the schedule will be announced in time.

Private Taxi - Bucharest Airport Shuttle

You can rent your private driver for a fix price. The driver will wait for you in the airport with your name written on an iPad. Unlike the normal taxi services, you know from the start how much you are going to pay for your trip and you will never have "surprises". 

Private Taxis and Buses - BucharestTransfer

You can book or rent a private taxi for a fixed price up to 4 passengers / car, but you also can order a minibus or a 50-seats bus. The driver will wait for you in the airport. 
Non-shared transfers are also available - endowed with a regular license issued by the competent local authority, regular permit and insurance for the transport of peoples as provided by law - and can be pre-booked on-line: Elegance Taxi and Taxi Bucuresti offers a Mercedes E-Class transfers for up to 4 passengers for €20 from OTP to the city, pay online or to the driver, by card or cash. 


The safest way to get a low cost taxi - Dacia Logan(1.39 lei/km) or premium taxi - Mercedes-Benz (up to 3.49 lei/km) is to order one using the electronic touch-screen kiosks on the Arrivals level (after you claim your luggage and exit). This will provide you with a printed ticket (which you should be sure to keep) for a specific taxi which will arrive within minutes.With a normal-rate taxi the ride to the city center should cost only €15 (60-70 LEI) and for premium taxis should not exceed €40 (150-180 LEI).


Express bus 783 goes from the airport to downtown Bucharest. It runs approximately every 20 minutes, daily, including weekends and holidays (every 40 minutes during the night). 

Welcome to Radisson BLU,Bucharest!

You will feel absolutely pampered and will have trouble in choosing what to do first: either relax in the saunas from the World Class Health Academy or enjoy a soak in the outdoor jacuzzi you’ll find the inner courtyard. After a long day of meetings and finding new business partners, you can always relax in the Bali Spa with an array of massages and body treatments, or enjoy a healthy, energizing dinner and a delicious drink in any of the 8 bars and restaurants you can find on the venue.
