New record at Budapest Airport
Traffic at Budapest Airport has broken another record, as the number of arriving and departing passengers exceeded 12 million by the end of November. Thanks to the dynamic growth, more than one million passengers used the terminals of Budapest Airport in November, for the first time ever.

The earlier traffic growth in excess of 14 percent continued, as Budapest Airport registered 1,025,501 passengers during the month of November. This is the first time in the history of the Hungarian capital airport that traffic exceeded 1 million in November. Since the Christmas and the year-end period is always very busy, it is highly likely that traffic will approach or even exceed 13 million this year, setting another amazing record after the 11.4 million result in 2016, a press release by Budapest Airport says.

The dynamic traffic growth is showing no signs of slowing down during the winter. Forecasts indicate that a natural dip usually occurs in traffic every year during January and February, which is likely to be the case in 2018 as well, but traffic performance in Budapest has become steadier and more balanced over the past years. This is partly explained by the fact that the 2017/18 winter schedule contained no fewer than 14 new flights and frequency increases, including, amongst others, new services to sunny, seaside destinations or nearby cities in places like the Canary Islands and Morocco. Both Wizz Air and Ryanair are offering new flights to these places, at affordable prices. Also, Iberia is returning to Budapest from December, with a flight to Madrid during the winter.
