More flights to Lisbon from Budapest

Since the bankruptcy of Malev other companies are getting more and more popular. We all know that RyanAir launched flights to 32 destinations from Budapest after Malev went down, and several other companies also launch new routes. Earlier today I read that WizzAir will launch two new routes from Debrecen to Milan and to Eindhoven (in addition to their existing route from Debrecen to London Luton). From the official web page of Budapest Airport we also got the information today that Tap Portugal will add even more flights to their existing route between Budapest and Lisbon. Last year the company brought more than 50,000 passengers on this line and this year they will hopefully transport even more people with even more flights added. This means that there will be two flights leaving every Saturday from Budapest to Lisbon, instead of one earlier.

Not long ago someone asked us whether it is possible to fly directly from Budapest to Paphos in Cyprus, this beauty of a city where the summer lasts for around 8 months a year. But, unfortunately we can not help out with flights to Paphos, at least not direct ones. But, if you look around, it is possible to fly with KLM to Amsterdam, and there you can change flights and fly on to Paphos.

Earlier Malév had a route to Cyprus, but it was not to Paphos either, so that would not help out under any circumstances. But, if you would rather visit Israel instead, then the amount of flights between Budapest and Tel Aviv was raised earlier this week, so it looks like it will get easier to visit Israel as well! Good luck with your flight tickets and have a nice holiday!

Ryan Air returns to Budapest

After a break since 2010 RyanAir is about to return to Budapest again. As of March 12th they will start with five routes from Budapest. The destinations are: Dublin, London, Bologna, Birmingham and Bristol. Visit the RyanAir webpage.

In addition to this Wizz Air launches a new flight to Dortmund, flying 2-3 times a week. Visit the WizzAir webpage.

So this makes it easier to visit Budapest, and easier for us in Budapest to visit other places!

Ryan Air leaves Budapest

Ryan Air, currently flying to Glasgow,  East Midlands, Dublin and Bristol from Budapest, will stop flying from Budapest in the end of October 2010. After negotiations with the people at Budapest Airport, they could not agree on prices, and therefore Ryan Air pulls out. They also said, that if they would have gotten cheaper prices, more destinations would be added from Budapest. This did not convince the people at Budapest Airport!

If you want to travel with Ryan Air from Budapest, do it before October 31. If you would like to travel with Ryan Air from Hungary after that, you will have to travel to Balaton and the airport Sármellék, close to Hevíz and Keszthely.
