Budapest Airport has welcomed the start of Ryanair’s inaugural flight to Seville after the twice-weekly service begun yesterday.
Europe’s largest low-cost carrier (LCC) is currently the only airline serving the 2,327-kilometre route and now offering eight Spanish destinations from the Hungarian airport.
Budapest Airport head of airline development, Balázs Bogáts said: “Ryanair’s new schedule gives our passengers the perfect opportunity for a long weekend break in one of Spain’s most historic and picturesque cities – one which still appreciates the pleasure of a siesta – while also opening the perfect connection for the residents of Seville to visit Budapest.
The Spanish market from the Hungarian capital city saw a 25 per cent increase in traffic last year, a significantly robust growth with continuing potential. “Ryanair has seen the opportunity in one of our largest country markets and it’s encouraging to watch the airline grow its footprint in our Spanish network,” added Bogáts.
