New Product at Budapest Airport: Fast Track Lane
Budapest Airport passengers can count on yet another improved service feature from 1st July: the introduction of Fast Track Lane.
This new service is available to all airline passengers – depending on airline eligibility or individual decision of the passengers.
Budapest Airport introduces a new service for the comfort of its airline passengers, the so-called Fast Track Lane. This in practice means that passengers will have an option to choose between ordinary passenger security procedure or the improved services of the Fast Track Lane, that will provide swift and comfortable security checks with minimal waiting time. The Fast Track Lane will mean no easing up of any element of the security procedure however will provide faster access to the SkyCourt shopping and dining services and quicker access to boarding.
The Fast Track Lane will be available for any eligible premium passengers nominated by their airlines to Budapest Airport in advance, similar to the Priority lane currently being phased out at the end of June. In addition economy or coach class passengers or any low cost airline passengers may also gain access either through pre-purchasing the product from their airlines or by visiting one of the sales points in the Terminal. Budapest Airport plans to introduce up to three sales points at Terminal T2A and T2B from the 1st July. Arrangements are currently being finalized with partners operating within the Terminal to sell the Fast Track product. Anyone who is late for boarding or simply does not want to spend any time waiting for security might purchase Fast Track Lane vouchers in the departure area of the terminals. One dedicated Fast Track passenger security lane will be dedicated at each entry point to the SkyCourt, one lane will remain dedicated for staff and crew with the remaining 9 security lanes available to all other passengers.
“Budapest Airport had to respond to the changes in airline mix and changes in passengers’ travelling customs, this is the main reason why we have decided to introduce the Fast Track Lane services” said Kam Jandu, Aviation Director of Budapest Airport. He added: “We are currently in negotiations with all our airline partners about the introduction of this new service that will start as of 1st July this year. Our staff are currently undergoing training regarding which airlines have pre–registered for the service which will now fully ensure that only real eligible passengers will be using the dedicated service. Despite relocating all airlines in to Terminal 2 since the 30th May, we have not experienced any adverse affects on the security screening waiting times. Still, I am sure that during the summer peak travel season this quality service will quickly become popular with passengers, especially after it will be introduced as an add-on option to web-based ticket sales with several airlines.”
