Budapest Airport recognises retail partners of distinction following another record-breaking year

Budapest Airport hosted its 9th Annual Awards Ceremony last night in the grandiose Terminal 1 Event Center. Around 300 guests gathered to recognise the success of the airport’s closely-held business partners, not only during another record-breaking year in 2015, but also over the past decade. Having smashed the 10 million passenger traffic threshold, Budapest also recorded a remarkable 17% increase in retail and F&B transactions last year, meaning the evening was a chance to honour and thank our business partners who have played a hugely important role in the enhancement of Budapest’s commercial development.


This year’s retail partners of distinction, Szamos and Leroy, are rewarded at Budapest Airport’s 9th Annual Awards Ceremony, hosted in the historic Terminal 1 Event Center.
