At the moment, tourist transport is a complex phenomenon, and choosing one or another of the transport forms is subject to the influence of a series of factors regarding consumer behavior. Among different forms of transportation air transport has distinct and obvious advantages – short duration of transport for long distances, relative safety, comfort and prestige, high quality services on board and at terminal level, incentives, and accessibility to relatively isolated areas. As disadvantages one may mention the high costs, the mandatory early arrival at airport, at least two hours in advance, the necessity to travel to airports which are usually outside cities, its dependence on meteorological conditions and threat of terrorism. At world level it accounts for 47% of international traffic, while at European Union level it represents 25%. As far as Romania is concerned air transport accounts for only 17-19%, below the European average both for foreign tourists arrival in Romania and for Romanian tourists travels abroad, but a growth tendency during the past few years is obvious.
