Having already announced four new links to begin this summer, Ryanair has now kick-started Budapest’s winter season adding daily services to Berlin Schönefeld from 30 October, and Nuremberg from 1 November, making a total of 20 routes from the Hungarian gateway. Currently facing no direct competition on Nuremberg, the low-cost carrier will now be connecting Budapest to Bavaria – home to one of Hungary’s largest expat communities, with more than 60,000 Hungarians living in the region.
Commenting on the announcement, Kam Jandu, Chief Commercial Officer, Budapest Airport says: “It is great news that Ryanair will once again be enriching our route network from the winter, even before the summer season has started! We welcome this announcement and are especially pleased to announce that our growing number of indirect passengers from Bavaria will now see a direct link, therefore this service is sure to be a great success.”
Ryanair, which launched its first ever link to Israel from Budapest Airport last November, has announced a further two new services to Nuremberg and Berlin this winter, taking the number of routes served by the low-cost carrier from Budapest to 20.
