BUCHAREST, Romania—Romanian authorities have appointed a new general manager at the country's national airline Tarom.
The airline says Friday that Gabriela Bordea, who previously served as Tarom's marketing and sales director, will take up the position. She began working for the airline in 1973 and has been Tarom's representative in Paris, Brussels and Tel Aviv during her career.
Bordea replaces Ruxandra Brutaru who resigned in March, after the International Monetary Fund put the airline on a list of companies holding back the country's economic recovery, saying its debts are putting a brake on economic recovery.
Officially, Tarom, which flies to 57 destinations, had profits of $15 million (euro10.61 million) in 2010.
