With the traditional presentation of a celebratory cake, Jandu was accompanied by Deputy Ambassador of Netherland Embassy in Hungary, Elzo Molenberg, and easyJet’s Commercial Manager, William Vet (right of cake).
Welcoming the inaugural flight from Amsterdam, Kam Jandu, CCO at Budapest Airport said: “easyJet’s operation is a great addition to our network, being our first low-cost service to Amsterdam and targeting a different passenger segment from KLM’s existing link. Last year we witnessed 26% growth on the route, proving the popularity of the city pair and the high demand for more choice and availability.”
William Vet, Commercial Manager at easyJet, responsible for BeNeLux countries is optimistic: “We are happy to launch easyJet’s first Amsterdam-Budapest flight. With this year-round service, Dutch and Hungarian tourists, as well as business travelers, can fly between the two cities for an affordable price, using centrally located airports.
The number of European cities directly connected with Budapest by EasyJet has grown to eight: London Gatwick, Berlin Schönefeld, Paris CDG, Lyon, Basel, Geneva, and Venice Marco Polo all being equally accessible for Hungarian passengers. The popularity of Hungary as a destination has steadily increased among Dutch tourists, and so we are confident that the route will be successful from our side too."
