Starting its fifth German connection, Wizz Air’s new operation will give the ULCC a 15% share of all of Budapest’s scheduled seats to the German market. Adding another 1,260 weekly seats from the capital city airport further establishes Germany as the largest country served from Budapest. With the addition of Wizz Air’s Frankfurt link, the Central Eastern European airport will now offer more than 160 weekly services to 13 of Germany’s airports.
Commenting on the announcement, Balázs Bogáts, Head of Airline Development at Budapest Airport said: “It’s great news that Wizz Air will once again be enhancing our route network adding its 61st destination from Budapest this winter. Our largest carrier’s low-cost service will compliment our existing Lufthansa service to Frankfurt and, as an extremely popular route, we more than welcome Wizz Air’s new link which will help us meet the demands of all our customers.”
