The Skytrax award is decided each year by a survey of tens of thousands of passengers who are asked about airport services, including passenger pick-up, the quality of passenger services, and the level of safety.
The Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport has won the title of the “Best Airport in Eastern Europe” for the 8th time in a row.
“This year’s award is particularly important to us, as not only the overall performance of the airport, but also our responses to the epidemic situation have been recognized by passengers,” Chris Dinsdale, CEO of the airport, said.
The airport operator is constantly working to provide its passengers with a risk-free airport stay. In the last two years, EUR 167 million worth of developments have taken place, half of which took place in 2020, during COVID-19.
The Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport closed in 2020 with a loss of EUR 110 million, the largest loss ever. However, infrastructure, capacity and digital investments continued, and the company has completed 95 percent of the development projects planned for 2019 despite COVID-19.
Based on the results of Randstad Employer Brand Research 2021, the world’s largest independent employer brand research in 34 countries, Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport also earned a special award as Hungary’s most attractive employer in the service sector.
Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport has gained a leading position in recent years as the fastest growing airport in the region. Together with its airline partners, it has become one of the key players in the tourism development of Hungary and Budapest, while BUD Cargo City is a central point for the import and export of air cargo.
Budapest Airport aims to become the cargo gateway to Central and Eastern Europe as well.
