A press release by Qatar Airways says Budapest is a highly in-demand destination for both tourists and business travellers alike. It is known as a spa town by sitting on a patchwork of almost 125 thermal springs. Bisected by River Danube, the city sights include the Chain Bridge, Buda Castle, the Hungarian Parliament Building, Széchenyi Baths and Fisherman's Bastion Viewpoint.

According to Qatar Airways Country Manager Eastern Europe - Center, Grisha Jenkov, “we are delighted to offer four additional flights to Budapest, one of our most sought-after destinations. In line with our robust and expedited expansion plans, this increase in frequency and an aircraft upgrade to an Airbus A330 will provide even greater choice to our business and leisure passengers, who can connect seamlessly at five-star Hamad International Airport onwards to more than 150 global destinations.”

The route is currently operated double daily by Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft, and - acording to the announcement - one of the daily service will be operated by a wide body Airbus A330 starting on August 1.

The additional frequency commencing the next day will be served by an Airbus A320, featuring 12 seats in Business Class and 132 seats in Economy Class. Passengers travelling in Business Class can create their own personalised dining experience thanks to the airline’s Pre-Select Dining service.
