Christmas sparkle at Budapest Airport
Budapest Airport’s terminals have been bedecked with Christmas decorations. The airport operator has adorned Terminals 1 and 2 with more beautiful and glittering decorations than ever before, including its new passenger hall, bud:SkyCourt, which is celebrating its first Christmas.
All terminals have been adorned with Christmas decorations as of 1st December. Budapest Airport would like to give a fantastic welcome to passengers traveling during the Christmas period. To this end, the passenger halls have been covered with more spectacular decorations than ever before. The glistening ornaments will hopefully bring a smile to the face of visitors and conjure a real festive atmosphere.
True to tradition, the giant Christmas tree has been erected on the mezzanine level of Terminal 1. Both the inside and the outside of the Bauhaus-style historical building have been decorated with energy-efficient illuminated garlands. Terminal 2 has likewise been fitted with festive decorations; the 2A and B buildings are lit up by approximately 30 000 LEDs, with Christmas trees and more decorations inside the terminals to delight passengers. bud:SkyCourt is preparing for its first real Christmas. On the exterior, light chains consisting of 15 000 LEDs emphasize the roof structure, reminiscent of a wing section or a shell. On the interior, not only decorations, but also winter discounts await passengers traveling around Christmas.
Budapest Airport and the tenants operating in bud:SkyCourt also launched a joint campaign as of 1 December. As part of this, all passengers making a purchase at the shops or restaurants can spin the wheel of fortune to win prizes on the spot. Everyone is a winner in this initiative as the hostesses hand out Christmas gifts to all shoppers. The campaign lasts until Christmas, or, to be more precise, until 23 December.
“bud:SkyCourt has received several architecture awards since its opening. Accordingly, the Christmas lighting expressly highlights the architectural values of the building; the bold curves, the huge glass façade and the breathtaking internal spaces,” said Alan Bork, director consumer for Budapest Airport. “We are hopeful that passengers will be delighted with our Christmas arrangements, since the sparkle, the festive atmosphere at the terminals and our retail campaigns are all designed to please our passengers.”
