Recording a solid 18% growth in passenger traffic so far this year, the start of June has seen significant expansion of Budapest Airport’s route map.

Adding to the Hungarian gateway’s destinations, Ryanair has launched several new routes in the first few days of the month, seeing the ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) operate a network of 66 destinations from Budapest throughout the S24 schedule.

Launching three routes on Sunday, Budapest celebrated Ryanair’s expanded services to Portugal, Germany, and Italy:

Operating twice-weekly flights to Faro, the new service joins the airline’s existing Portuguese services to Lisbon and Porto, providing passengers with greater access to Portugal’s stunning Algarve region.

Commencing twice-weekly flights to Frankfurt-Hahn and offering convenient access to Germany’s financial hub and rich cultural offerings, this new route becomes Ryanair’s third German destination from Budapest, complementing its services to Berlin Brandenburg and Nuremburg.

A new twice-weekly service to Trieste sees the ULCC now operate 74 weekly services to 14 Italian destinations from Budapest.

Significantly boosting travel options to and from this popular European country, the latest destination is known for its stunning architecture and picturesque coastal views offering a unique blend of Italian and Central European influences.

Yesterday welcomed Ryanair’s fourth new route this month, introducing a twice-weekly link to Skiathos and its ideal Mediterranean tranquillity.

Marking the airline’s ninth Greek route from the airport, Ryanair now offers a total of 27 weekly flights to various Greek destinations.

This month’s new routes join the launched S24 services to Milan (daily) and Tirana (three-times weekly), further expanding Ryanair’s network from Budapest Airport.

Máté Ritter, Head of Airline Development, Budapest Airport, says: “It’s fantastic to report a remarkable 18% growth in passenger numbers while continuing to expand our route map.

“The new routes launched by Ryanair significantly enhance our connectivity and provide our passengers with more travel options.

“These developments underscore Budapest Airport’s commitment to continuously improving our services and strengthening connections for all passengers.”
