New Logistic Centre At Budapest Airport May Open Up Hundreds Of Workplaces
Workplace creation and the reinforcement of social roots through employment are top priorities for the Hungarian Government and this occasion today is another step towards achieving these goals, Minister of State for Infrastructure Pál Völner said at the inauguration ceremony of the logistic base in Budapest Airport Business Park in Budapest, on 30 October, 2013.

Budapest Airport Ltd. is to establish a commercial business park at the southern part of Liszt Ferenc International Airport, easily accessible by road as well. It is in this, to be established, Budapest Airport Business Park where the newly inaugurated, up-to-date logistic site was constructed, through an investment of some EUR 10 million (HUF 3 billion).

At the inauguration ceremony, Pál Völner emphasised that the favourable geographical location of Hungary and the excellent quality of Hungarian workforce had enabled Hungary to become one of the most attractive investment targets in Central Europe. The Minister of State opined that the inauguration of the new establishment was an example proving that the development of Budapest and its catchment area meant an upswing for the whole country at the same time.

In the past few years, Budapest Airport had implemented investments at the airport worth EUR 300 million approximately (HUF 90 billion), whereby the company could become an employment creation centre in the South Pest Region. The Business Park, having excellent air, road and railway connections – with twenty European countries lying within one thousand km referred to as a “transportation distance” – may become a promising development site for Hungarian and international enterprises.

It was the divisions of Deutsche Post DHL that first moved into the office and warehouse complex, occupying a total area of some 17 thousand square metres. This new site is to become the workplace for over 200 DHL employees.
