Târgu Mureş International Airport is an international airport located 14 km (8.7 mi) southwest of Târgu Mureş, Mureş County, in central Romania.

Opened in 1961, it serves the city of Târgu Mureş (pop. 150,000) as well Mureş, Harghita and Bistrița-Năsăud counties.

Formerly known as Vidrasău (for the city 17 km (10.6 mi) outside of Târgu Mureş where it is located), it was renamed Transilvania Târgu Mureş in August 2006.

Târgu Mureş Airport provides services for an area of 24500 km2 (15223.6 mi), with some 2.6 million inhabitants.

The airport has undergone extensive renovation. In October 2005 a new international terminal was opened, and Category II instrument landing system was installed, allowing the handling of flights 24 hours a day.
