Following another record-breaking year for passenger traffic, Budapest Airport’s high expectations for further route development continues with the announcement of its first new airline partner for 2017. Having already confirmed 11 new operations for this year, the Hungarian gateway will welcome Flybe’s three times weekly service to London Southend from May, the airport’s fifth link to the UK capital city.


As of this summer Budapest will directly serve 41 country markets, the UK being one of the largest market flown (in terms of weekly seats) from Hungary’s capital city airport. The London market is by far the largest city pair from Budapest with the airport expecting to serve 1.5 million round-trip passengers to and from the UK capital this year, a notable 14% year-on-year increase. Joining existing links to London Gatwick, London Heathrow, London Luton and London Stansted, Flybe’s new service to London Southend means Budapest will offer 14 daily flights consisting of over 34,000 two-way weekly seats to London in S17.

Commenting on the latest addition to Budapest’s route network, the airport’s CCO, Kam Jandu said: “Announcing the arrival of a new airline partner to the Hungarian market is a great way to start the year. Flybe was looking for a first-class European city-break destination and we’re certain Budapest will meet all expectations, in fact we’re extremely confident it won’t be long before we will be seeing a frequency increase on this route.” He added: “I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our airline partners for their support throughout 2016 – exceeding the 11.4 million passenger mark could only be reached through the continued teamwork and strong partnerships we’re fortunate to have here at Budapest.”
