Although it has not been confirmed, it is highly likely that AirConnect uses Henri Coandă International Airport (Bucharest International Airport) as its hub.
The airport is Romania's busiest international airport and is situated 17 km north of the Bucharest city centre. The airport is named after Henri Coandă, a Romanian flight pioneer and inventor of the Coandă-1910 aircraft. In 2022, the airport served over 12 million passengers - an 82% increase from the previous year.
AirConnect has a fleet of a total of 2 aircraft. These are both the ATR 72-600.
The ATR 72-600 offers a lighter structure, optimised speed and an engine designed for short, regional routes. It's the most fuel-efficient regional aircraft that currently exists and uses 40% less fuel and less CO2 per trip compared to other regional jet models.
AirConnect has an average fleet age of around 8-9 years.
