Budapest Airport is delighted to welcome low-cost carrier Ryanair and its return to the Hungarian capital today. Effective 17th February it will commence direct services to six of a total 32 European destinations - Barcelona, Stockholm, Madrid and Dublin plus two all-new routes, to London Stansted in the UK and Karlsruhe in Germany. The 26 additional routes will start operations within the coming weeks.
The introduction of the Budapest-London Stansted route will increase the choice of London airports served, as well as offer some highly attractive fares. Existing routes to Budapest from the UK currently served by other carriers operate from London Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton. Ryanair’s new route to Karlsruhe in Germany will offer direct and convenient access to the beautiful Black Forest region and the famous spa-town of Baden-Baden.
Jost Lammers, Budapest Airport CEO said: \\\\\\\"Welcoming Ryanair back to our airport was always on the agenda and whilst they initially announced five routes for commencement in March, this has now been increased to 32 in total. Operating from Terminal 2 and paying the same T2 charges as all airlines in Terminal 2, there is now more competition in this market, affording more convenience and choice for travellers. We look forward to Ryanair’s long and continuous operations from our airport.\\\\\\\"
Ryanair previously served Budapest from 2005 to 2010 with flights to Bristol, East Midlands and Dublin. It was encouraged back as Budapest is a popular destination for leisure travellers, renowned for its traditional Hungarian culture and hospitality as well as its vibrant night-life and historic spas built around natural hot springs and thermal pools.
