Iberia will resume Budapest-Madrid flights from 1 April to 28 October, two months earlier than in the past two years, with 3-7 flights each week, varying with the months.
Passengers arriving from Budapest in Madrid can continue with Iberia to another 20 cities in Spain, including Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Santiago de Compostela, and Bilbao; to Lisbon and Oporto in Portugal; to Johannesburg in South Africa; and to six Latin American destinations: Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Lima*, Montevideo, Santiago de Chile, and São Paulo.
Kam Jandu, Chief Commercial Officer for Budapest Airport, commented: “We’re delighted to see the return of Iberia and, this time, with a schedule to cover the whole of the summer season, which will give Hungarian and Spanish travellers far more options than before. In addition, Spain is one of our fastest growing country pairs with over 600,000 passengers connecting between the two countries last year”.
Iberia’s sales chief for Europe, Celia Muñoz, said: “Budapest has become one of the most popular destinations for Spanish tourists, and this year we hope to make Spain and Latin America just as popular for Hungarians.”
Iberia will use 136- and 200-seat Airbus A320s on the Madrid-Budapest route, with Business and Economy seating classes. To adapt to the needs of different groups of passengers, a variety of fares is offered, in which customers pay for individual services, and can economise by forgoing some of these.
In 2017, Iberia will offer nearly 29,000 seats on its flights between Budapest and Madrid.
