Recording an all time high of over 8.3 Million origin and destination passengers, more visitors came to Hungary than ever before as Budapest continues to become more and more popular for business and leisure purposes. The split between full service and low cost airlines is now an ideal 50/50 balance for this EU capital city airport.
With the largest unserved markets of any EU capital city to North America and Asia, GDP and Eurocontrol predictions for Hungary show that their forecasted growth will out perform the entire EU 27 markets from late 2014 onwards making market entry now a real opportunity for first mover long haul airlines wishing to get established in the Central Eastern European region. In addition, there are numerous white spots on the European network map where short haul operators can take advantage of growing market sizes and industry leading incentive programmes.
Budapest Airport’s vision is to become the best airport in Central- Eastern Europe for years. The biggest project realised to this end was the opening of the award winning bud:skycourt, the new Terminal 2 building with an investment of 100 million Euros. With enormous, 20 meter high glass windows, contemporary architectural solutions and a breathtaking view of the airport’s apron, bud:skycourt offers an unrivalled travelling experience for passengers. In addition, new basic boarding gate facilities, for walking boarding purposes were developed to meet the ever changing needs of cost conscious airlines offering a great alternative to standard terminal facilities.
