Budapest Airport boosts connectivity with Wizz Air

Budapest Airport boosts connectivity with Wizz Air

Looking ahead to 2020, Budapest Airport has announced enhancements to its route network with home-based airline partner, Wizz Air. Set to commence next summer, the Hungarian low-cost carrier (LCC) will be operating a daily service to Brussels, and new twice-weekly links to Lviv and Kharkiv in Ukraine.

By significantly strengthening Hungary’s links with the Belgian capital, Wizz Air gains an immediate 26% share of all weekly flights between the two cities. As the LCC joins existing services on the route, the addition of the new flights during S20 will see Budapest offer close to 150,000 seasonal seats to Brussels next summer.

Increasing connectivity to Ukraine, and with no direct competition on either link, Wizz Air will add Budapest’s fourth and fifth connections to the Eastern European country. As the services to Lviv and Kharkiv join the airline’s existing links to Kiev and Odesa (to launch in November), the carrier will offer 15 weekly flights to Ukraine.

“Wizz Air’s confirmation of further links to Ukraine will see Budapest offer its customers a total of 22 weekly operations to the growing nation nestled in Eastern Europe,” says Balázs Bogáts, Head of Airline Development, Budapest Airport. “This latest announcement will see our closely-held partner offer 71 city pairs next summer and, as the airline recognises the demand for further capacity on our services to Brussels, we look forward to continuing our growing partnership with this dynamic carrier,” adds Bogáts.
