Bucharest, Romania June 2008: Arriving in Henri Coanda International, Bucharest Romania (OTP)

14JUN08 Henri Coanda International, Bucharest Romania (OTP)

We touched down on runway 26L-08R at 4:48p and taxied to the end of the runway. I could see a number of planes on the right side of the runway.

This is the home of Tarom, so it was great to see their planes everywhere.

A Boeing 737 being salvaged just outside the hangar.

We deplaned and headed for the Immigration area. On our way there, we could see our plane as well as an Austrian Airlines Airbus A319.

There was a lady with a name on a sign, we figured correctly that it was Woody's assumed travel name. We headed for the Customs area and entered the meet and greet area. We walked around a bit, found an Exchange place, found out that the 783 is our bus into the city for 7 LEU for two rides and caught the 5:30p packed bus into the city for the 30 minutes ride. We had asked for a map at the Information booth, but there was none. Instead, we were sent to a magazine store around the corner to buy one. We decided against that.
