To commemorate the enhanced service, Qatar Airways and Budapest Airport organised a reception at the airport’s new bud:skycourt facility. Budapest Airport’s Executive Management team was joined by senior representatives of Qatar Airways and a number of invited guests, including key Hungarian travel agencies and Hungarian media.
"The journey time has been significantly shortened for passengers travelling from Budapest to the Middle East and the daily service enables increased options for onward connections to Asia," said Kam Jandu, Budapest Airport’s Director of Aviation. "Passengers will also benefit from the increased frequency on Qatar Airways’ Airbus A320 aircraft.”
With immediate effect, the new Qatar Airways’ Doha – Budapest schedules are:
|Flight No. QR947||Depart Doha 0900||Arrive Budapest 1335|
|Flight No. QR948||Depart Budapest 1730||Arrive Doha 2345<|
The increased rotation builds on a successful start to the Qatar Airways’ route, which has been operating a four-times-a-week Doha to Budapest service since January, offering its award winning five star service to passengers originating in the Middle East and further afield via its hub connections.
