Airberlin ramping up service from Berlin to Budapest


BERLIN, Germany – Airberlin is ramping up its service from Berlin to Budapest, connecting the two cities three times a day from Monday to Friday. The additional flight AB8260 is taking off from Berlin at 9.30pm and reaches Budapest at 10.55pm. For travellers from Budapest this means an extra flight, taking off from the Hungarian capital at 6.25am and landing in Berlin at 7.55am. With one flight in the morning, one flight in the afternoon and the new flight in the evening, airberlin is the airline with the most flexible flight service between these two fashionable cities. Several connection flights from other cities are available via Berlin.

Regarding the development of the route, Julio Rodriguez, CCO airberlin, said: “airberlin has been flying to Budapest since 2012. Since then, the route has developed positively and we have steadily extended our flight offer. With the additional frequency, we now offer our passengers even more travel options between the two cities. Business travellers particularly benefit from the extended offer and now have even greater flexibility in arranging their schedules. Furthermore, thanks to the new morning flight, passengers from Hungary have an even larger number of connecting flights from Berlin Tegel to further destinations in Europe and around the world.”

Csilla Mezösi, Director of the Hungarian Tourism Office based in Berlin, said: “We are delighted that airberlin will be connecting these two fashionable European cities even better from 27 March. Like Berlin, Budapest has plenty to offer travellers all year round. The Hungarian metropolis pulses with a hip mixture of traditional elegance and innovative contemporary culture. A visit to the trendy ruin pubs in the Jewish quarter, a trip to the mountains on the children’s railway, relaxing after a city tour in one of the numerous historical thermal baths, or simply enjoying the most beautiful panorama of the city from the Danube – Budapest has many facets, and something new is added somewhere or other in the city on an almost daily basis.”
