The Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport handled 54,407 passengers last month, which is a 95 percent drop from February 2020, but cargo traffic continues to grow – Budapest Airport told MTI on Thursday.

The decline is significant, because in February 2020, the last month before the restrictions, more than 1 million passengers were measured.

The data for 2021 will continue to follow the restrictions introduced across Europe, they wrote. According to the announcement, traffic has also decreased significantly elsewhere. According to the IATA (International Air Transport Association), global travel demand fell by 72 percent in January, up from December. The decline in European airlines is even more significant at 82.6 percent. (MTI)
