Budapest Airport Chapel Reopens
Following an intermission of a few years, the ecumenical chapel / room of silence at Budapest Airport reopened on 26 November. The facility was fitted out by the airport operator as part of its own development project.

The former "Dona nobis pacem" chapel, handed over in December 1998, had to be temporarily closed due to the construction of the new central passenger hall called the SkyCourt in 2009. The new ecumenical chapel / room of silence is located on the mezzanine level of Terminal 2B, and is open to the followers of all religions and denominations.

As with the previous facility, the primary objective for Budapest Airport was to provide an appropriate location and conditions for passengers and visitors seeking inner, spiritual silence and peace before or after their journey. Accordingly, the chapel is open to all visitors, irrespective of religious denomination.

In accordance with previous practice, the chapel / room of silence will serve as the home of the Airport Chaplaincy, and will be operated by Budapest Airport.
