Air Oradea is a planned Romanian regional carrier that plans on beginning services in the first half of 2022. The airline was proposed by Bihor County officials and the government of Oradea as a means of getting tourists from throughout Romania and the wider Danube area into the region. Oradea does not have a motorway or direct road network connecting the region to the countries capital so the airline hopes to promote connectivity and mobility for Oradea and Romania. The airline has stated that they will operate services from Oradea to Bucharest, once launched with plans to also serve 4 other European hubs, however, these haven't been publicised yet. The airline has not yet determined the fleet of aircraft they wish to use.
As of December 2021, Air Oradea plans to begin services in 2022 to Bucharest 3 times daily (mon - fri) and 2 times daily at weekends. The airline also plans to operate services to other European hubs within the Danube area.
