Troops Using MK Passenger Transit Center in Romania
Afghanistan retrograde to the United States are now flying into and out of the MK Passenger Transit Center at Mihail Kogalniceanu Air Base in Romania. The new transit center has been established to replace the Manas Transit Center in Krygyzstan which will close in July. The Krygyzstan government decided not to renew the lease at the Manas Air Base - looking for other financial opportunities for the U.S. built runways. The new transit center in Romania was built in part by the 902nd Engineer Company of the Germany-based 21st Theater Sustainment Command.
