A significant expansion is expected in the summer schedule of Liszt Ferenc Airport, while another record passenger traffic is forecast for this season. In the summer schedule, 130 airports of 122 cities will be directly accessible, which are served by 39 airlines – Balázs Bogáts, Budapest Airport’s commercial deputy general manager, told

Frequency increased by 14.3 percent and capacity by 8.2 percent compared to last year, which is outstanding in the continent’s aviation market, considering the limited availability of new aircraft and the challenges of managing the existing fleet.

Both Ryanair and Wizz Air are starting this season with bigger plans: Ryanair has announced 6 new routes and is increasing the number of flights on its 26 existing routes, while Wizz Air is launching flights on 7 new routes and increasing the number of flights on 10 existing routes.

This season, it is expected that they will exceed the record passenger traffic of 2019, partly thanks to the varied spring-summer schedule. An average capacity increase of 13.3 percent is forecast on the most popular routes.
