TSR Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Timișoara Traian Vuia International Airport.

What to Expect

timisoara airport guideTimisoara Airport (codes: TSR) has a single terminal that primarily serves low-cost carriers and seasonal routes across Europe. A terminal expansion is almost complete with an anticipated opening in 2019. Amenities are limited to two snack bars, a few shops including duty-free, and vending machines. Free WiFi helps pass the time, but power outlets are in short supply. Economy class passengers may be able to enter two airport lounges. See Airport Lounges in the guide below for location and access information.

Where to Sleep

Overnight sleepers seem to have no problem here. There are some flat benches for resting, otherwise you’ll likely wind up on the floor. Music may play on the loudspeakers all night, so bring earplugs or noise-cancelling headphones. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer shuttle service for a fee. See the Airport Hotels section below for locations or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.

Covid-19 Update

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all services and times listed below are subject to change. Some services and facilities may remain closed or operate with reduced hours.  Airport tips and suggestions in this guide and elsewhere on the site were written before March 2020 and may no longer be valid. If you are planning to sleep in the public area of the terminal overnight, have a back-up plan! We’ve heard from a few travellers at other airports and they were not permitted to stay overnight. We’re not sure if that will apply to this airport, until a reader lets us know the current situation. We will start updating all of our guides in October 2021.  To help us with this massive update, you can add or update information or write a review and submit photos and airport tips.
