Bucharest Airport: The International Departures

Even though photos are not allowed for whatever reason that would be, I managed to get myself some. It's not about stealing anything, it's a public space and you have the right to know what to expect next time you travel to Bucharest.


A small airport, two glass doors and an opening on a first duty free area. A long corridor and here comes another shopping center. Bigotti sportswear, refuel coffee shop, press news stand, Brioche Doree, Gloria Jeans Coffee and a dozen duty free shops from I bought gifts for my kids, perfumes for my wife and some locally made marine bracelets I loved.

The bizarre thing or the annoying thing is that the airport closes at 12 and Tarom's plane to Beirut is the last to depart. Half the shops would have been closed already and workers all around the terminal would have started cleaning. A desert space with one advantage; peace, calm and serenity.


A wine bar and below ground a food court where Burger King -which I didn't find inside the country- is open alongside trattoria Buongiorno, G city cafe and la Sarmale.

If you're here for a week, you can leave your shopping for the last minute. I'm sure my kids will love what I got them.

Traveling to or from Bucharest, enjoy the couple photos so you know what to expect.
