Serving as a hub for Wizz Air and a base for Ryanair, Budapest Ferihegy International Airport has welcomed new links with both low-fare carriers.
This week, the Hungarian hub celebrated Wizz Air’s inaugural flight to Doncaster Sheffield – the largest market town in Yorkshire, northern UK. The low-fare carrier’s 66th non-stop destination from Budapest, the new route will be operated three times weekly. The home-based carrier’s new link comes after it launched new routes to Stavanger, Athens and Basel from the Hungarian capital during the summer season.
The Hungarian gateway has also added a twick-weekly operation to Amman, Jordan, courtesy of Ryanair. Marking its re-appearance on Budapest’s route network, the link to the Jordanian capital will also introduce a connection to Aqaba on the Red Sea coast – a popular winter sun destination.
Commenting on Ryanair’s new service, Mate Ritter, airline development manager, Budapest Airport said: “It’s fantastic to welcome the noteworthy addition of such an intriguing destination for our passengers with our important partner Ryanair.”
