Budapest Airport’s W17/18 with Ryanair

Having already added 16 new routes so far this year, Budapest Airport has launched W17/18 by celebrating six links with Ryanair in the first few days of the new season. Celebrating the notable addition of the Hungarian gateway’s first year-round service to Marrakech, the ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) has also expanded its route network from Budapest by commencing twice-weekly services to Palermo, Valencia and Edinburgh and a five times weekly service to Prague, while a three times weekly service to Naples joins the roll call of destinations tomorrow.

Commenting on the ULLC’s growth at the airport, Budapest’s Head of Airline Development Balázs Bogáts said: “Adding these new services means Ryanair now offers 30 destinations from Budapest helping us work towards our strategic goal to ensure we offer a rich variety of destinations to our customers.”
Delivering more than 1.7 million passengers to Hungary’s capital city last year, Europe’s largest airline (in terms of passenger numbers) has expanded its route network from Budapest by 29% in 2017. Launching the airport’s first direct link to Morocco, Ryanair’s service to Marrakech provides an in-demand link to a potential market of 30,000 round-trip passengers. Adding the airport’s 45th country market, the carrier’s route joins existing African links to Egypt, Algeria and Tunisia, meaning Budapest will offer close to 2,500 weekly seats to the region this winter.
