Budapest Airport Offers Discounts On Unserved Routes
Last year’s bankruptcy of state airline Malév led to a reduction of “only” 5% in the number of passengers that use Budapest’s Liszt Ferenc Airport, said Budapest Airport’s CEO Jost Lammers.

“There are promising destinations, where there is no direct flight from Budapest, for instance to Spain or France” said Budapest Airport’s director of air traffic Kam Jandu.

The airport will offer a 50% discount to airlines for destinations with flights travelling only two, three or four days a week, he said.

Iberia, flying to Valencia, could be eligible for such a discount, he said, adding that there are currently no direct flights to Tokyo, New York, Bangkok, or to Sofia, Sarajevo or Dubrovnik.

The Malév bankruptcy led to a drop in airline ticket prices and fiercer competition, Lammers noted.
