The airline Tarom is a Romanian national carrier, which in 97.05 percent belongs to the Romanian Ministry of Transport. The oldest and largest airline in this country was created in 1920, but the first regular connection, on the route from Bucharest to Galati, was launched only 5 years later. Until 1989, the year of the fall of the communist government of Romania, the airline operated only on Il type airplanes. In 1990, they were replaced by Boeings and Airbuses. In 1993, the Romanian carrier launched flights to Bangkok and Montreal, after noticing large losses in 2001 they were closed, and in the next two years the remaining long-distance cruises, including to Chicago, New York and Beijing, were also closed. Currently, Tarom operates on 52 airports in 22 countries in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. Since June 25, 2010, it has been a member of the SkyTeam alliance. The main base of Tarom is the international airport in Otopeni near Bucharest.
At Tarom, hand baggage is included in the air ticket price. Passengers can bring on board one piece of baggage with specific dimensions and one small item, such as a purse or a laptop bag.
At Tarom, hand baggage, dimensions and weight are strictly defined, however, flights operated by the airline allies have their own baggage policy that must be followed. Liquids can be transported in hand luggage in packages with a maximum capacity of 100 ml, in a transparent bag of 20x20 cm.
At Tarom Airlines, checked baggage is also free, and the weight and quantity depend on the booking class and flight route. Any deviation from the permitted limit is associated with the need to pay excess baggage. Checked baggage cannot contain flammable materials, corrosive substances, money or documents.
There are two booking classes in the Romanian Tarom airlines. Tarom business class is a more expensive option, richer in passenger amenities. The ticket price includes a larger limit for checked baggage, and priority check-in or boarding. Business class passengers receive a welcome drink on board, and the menu and choice of spirits during the flight is more diverse. Travelers can also take advantage of the Tarom Business Lounge at the airports and relax before traveling. In turn, the Tarom economy class guarantees free hand and cabin baggage, but the limit is smaller. Passengers can choose the seat on the plane for free, and have the option of checking in online or at the airport and using the Air-Fi platform to play, watch movies or chat.
Tarom offers a few ways for passenger check-in. One of them is online check-in, available 30 hours before travel. Travelers can check in for free, but must do so no later than one hour before take-off. Online check-in is a much more convenient option, but Taron also allows checking in at the airport. Passengers can use self-service kiosks or check in at special desks. Check-in at the airport is possible from 2h to 45 minutes before the journey.
The fleet of Romanian carrier Tarom consists of 23 planes of type Airbus A30-300, A318, ATR 42-500, ATR 72-500, Boeing 737-300, B737-700.

Meals on board Romanian lines are adjusted to the culinary habits and culture of travellers. On domestic cruises, light snacks are served, and international dishes are more calorific. The variety of menu depends also on the duration of the flight. The airline also serves desserts in the form of cookies, chocolate or fruit. On routes up to two hours in economy class, in addition to sandwiches and dessert, passengers can count on a beer if an airplane takes off after midday. In the business class on international routes passengers are served top-quality desserts and the best quality wines, champagne and beer. On special request, the company will prepare a special meal, for example vegetarian, kosher or for children, even for babies.

As part of the program, travellers collect miles for flights which they can exchange for, e.g. flight discounts, hotel reservations or other services of the program’s partner companies. Each of Tarom’s customers can use the option of booking a special meal. The carrier offers dishes of various cuisines, including vegetarian, kosher, gluten-free meals, as well as menus for children or diabetics. During the flight, passengers can flip through the Insight on-board magazine or enjoy the Air-Fi multimedia platform. Tarom agrees to the transport of dogs and cats in the cabin or the hold.
