Budapest Airport's 7.4 billion HUF infrastructure development program starts in September
Aviation safety is a top priority for Budapest Airport, and in line with European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) regulations, a major taxiway and runway refurbishment project will begin at the airport in September.
The works will include widening the load-bearing surfaces and the shoulders of taxiways B3-B5 on several sections, renewing rainwater drainage systems and the lighting network. The development will be carried out in two phases, the first of which is expected to last from 8 August until the beginning of December, at a total cost of 3.5 billion HUF (9 million EUR).
Due to the increase in cargo volume and in order to efficiently handle aircraft with larger capacity, Budapest Airport will start the expansion of the BUD Cargo City apron, which will enable the airport to handle up to four category F cargo aircraft in parallel, instead of the current two. The apron extension will be implemented from a budget of 3.9 billion HUF (9.8 million EUR).
Budapest Airport decided to start the works simultaneously in order to complete them as efficiently as possible, before the next summer season.
