Budapest Airport to undergo further expansion

A new building will soon be added to Budapest Airport to accommodate an increasing number of budget airlines operating flights in and out of Hungary.

The new 2C terminal is being built to substitute the temporary, tin-walled buildings currently used by budget airlines. Passengers will be able to get to the new building via terminal 2B. 

Construction work has already begun. According to plans, the building will be launched towards the end of the year. It will offer a higher-quality, more-attuned experience for travelers, in accordance with 21st century standards. 

The lightweight structure will provide modern-day comfort with seating, heating, cooling systems, washbasins and bathrooms, and shopping. Passengers will have quick and easy access to planes, and buses will transport them to the door.

At the end of July, the government announced that Budapest Airport would be constructing the new buildings and a pedestrian corridor system for loading and unloading flights.

Gergely Gulyás, the Minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office, said that the use of the current terminal – likened to a cattle pen by disgruntled passengers – would be banned by decree as of January 1st, 2020.
