Budapest Airport has welcomed five strategically important new connections with Wizz Air, the ultra-low-cost carrier now linking the Hungarian gateway to five capitals in the Balkans region: Skopje (Macedonia), Podgorica (Montenegro), Tirana (Albania), Pristina (Kosovo) and Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina).
Speaking at today’s press conference, Jost Lammers, CEO, Budapest Airport said: “The launch of Wizz Air’s latest links is a significant step in re-establishing good connections between Hungary and important economic destinations in the Balkan Peninsula. Working closely with Wizz Air we have ensured Budapest’s accessibility in the region, as well as further improving business relations between the countries.” He added: “Wizz Air carried 3.3 million passengers on its Budapest routes last year and now, along with its latest additions to our network map, we look forward to ensuring the continued growth of
one of our largest airline partner’s services.”
Facing no direct competition on any of the routes, Budapest’s home-based carrier has launched twice-weekly services to each of the five Balkan Peninsula destinations seeing the Hungarian capital city grow its scheduled route network to 41 countries non-stop this summer.
