About The Airport

Budapest Airport (BUD) is the main international airport of Hungary, the gateway for a land-locked catchment of over 12.7 million people in a nearby radius. Serving more than 16,2 million passengers in 2019 – an all-time high in the history of the airport – BUD is continuing to expand, forecasting further growth  in 2020.  Numbers have increased by almost 60% since 2015 and 91% since 2013. Last year, our annual growth rate was more than double than the EU average growth, which was 3.2%. 


In 2019, 49 airlines served 153 airports in 135 cities and in 49 countries.

Adding 33 routes in 2019, our non-stop network is already set to rise to 210 routes in 2020.

Long-haul seat capacity exceeding 1.3 million seats this year, four times as many as in 2015. 

Being the most successful airport in Central  Eastern Europe in terms of passenger growth, service quality and operational efficiency, BUD has won the Skytrax Award for ‘Best Airport in Eastern Europe’ in six consecutive years – an unrivalled performance in the Central and Eastern European Region setting very high standards of customer service.
