Recently Timisoara got lots of low cost flight connections from numerous cities across Europe. Very often I see flights there for 10€/return! You can always look and purchase your flights via SkyScanner or Esky. Check out the deals on Timisoara flights here!
The airport is located 12 km northeast of the center of Timisoara. Access by car is made from the city to Lugoj, on the European road E70, from which it turns to the left (from a roundabout), a road signaling to the airport.
