Romanian Air Transport - TAROM - was established on the 18th of September 1954 and a few years later it was already operating to almost all European countries.
In 1969 TAROM aircraft IL-18 flew around the world in 80 hours over a 47,000 km distance departing from Bucharest to Delhi, Bangkok, Tokyo, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Ciudad de Mexico, New York, Las Palmas, Rome, Istanbul, Bucharest.
In 1966 TAROM operated its first flight across the Atlantic and in 1974 its first flight to Sydney via Calcutta and began operating scheduled flights to New York and Beijing.
In 1980 the transport capacity of the company doubled as compared to 1975 and tenfold as compared to the year of establishment. At the date, TAROM operated flights to 15 domestic destinations. In 1981 TAROM achieved a new performance by operating its first non-stop flight over 10,000 km between Bucharest and Bangkok. The 90s gave way to new routes to Chicago, Calcutta, Milan, Chisinau, Delhi, Verona, Bologna, Thessaloniki, Munich, Stuttgart and many more.
On June 25th, 2010, TAROM joined SkyTeam, the global alliance providing customers from member airlines access to an extensive global network with more destinations, more frequencies and more connections. TAROM is currently operating on 50 own destinations as well as destinations operated by its code share partners.
