Budapest Airport Passenger Numbers Over 1.5 M In July
In an all-time monthly peak, passenger numbers at Budapest’s Liszt Ferenc International Airport surpassed 1.5 million in July, up by an annual 13.8%, the airport said.

In January-July, passenger numbers at the airport reached 8.3 million, up by 14.7% from the same period of last year.

The pace of the rise is two and half times the European average and is extraordinary in the region, Budapest Airport chief commercial officer Kam Jandu said.

The number is expected to reach 15 million for the full year, up from 13 million in 2017.
