From 26 April, 2016, easyJet will operate a thrice-weekly service between Budapest Airport and its hub in Lyon, which is currently Budapest’s largest indirectly served destination in Europe.Kam Jandu, chief commercial officer of Budapest Airport, commented, “We’ve realised so many of our expectations and targets this year. To bring our lobbying to fruition with the addition of easyJet’s new service is testament to hard work and commitment. We were missing the heart of France from the direct routes available from Budapest so Lyon fits perfectly into our destination network. It’s amazing to think of the numbers passing through our terminal, and we looking forward to welcoming easyJet’s new passengers next summer, in another year that is already promising extensive further development for us.”The airport estimates the new Budapest–Lyon route will mean an extra 40,000 passengers passing through Budapest each year.
