X Faktor star Oláh Gergő arrived to work at Budapest Airport this afternoon - helping Jet2.com passengers to check-in for the airline’s first East Midlands flight. The singing superstar helped customers with baggage and answered questions about Nottinghamshire before getting everyone in the mood for travel with a special performance of his winning song – live from the departure gate.

Steve Heapy, Chief Executive of Jet2.com, said: “Budapest is an important part of our network and we are pleased to be celebrating today’s launch of flights to East Midlands. Oláh Gergő is a huge fan of Jet2.com, and he was only too happy to become one of our friendly cabin crew team for the day! The Nottinghamshire region has one of the most established tourism products in the UK – and I’m confident our low fares to East Midlands will be welcomed by our loyal Hungarian customers.”
Oláh Gergő added: “After winning the X Faktor, I took my first ever flight with Jet2.com earlier this year – and we had a great time! I’ve always loved the glamour of flying, so I jumped at the chance to be cabin crew for the day – especially as Jet2.com cabin crew are famous for being so friendly. I had a wonderful time chatting to customers today and I can’t wait to travel with my family to East Midlands later this year.”
