Budapest Airport relocates all passenger traffic to Terminal 2


Budapest Airport will move all airline operations from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 during the night of 29-30 May 2012.


From 30 May 2012, all easyJet, Germanwings,, Norwegian and Wizz Air passengers will depart from Budapest Airport’s Terminal 2B. Passengers flying on these airlines will arrive at Terminal 2A (from Schengen countries) or at Terminal 2B (from non-Schengen countries). 


As announced earlier, Budapest Airport will close Terminal 1 for passenger operations on a temporary basis. The loss of traffic in the wake of the collapse of the Hungarian national carrier Malév and additional tax burdens leave Budapest Airport no other choice but to reduce operational costs by combining operational areas, and make the best use of the infrastructure at the more modern Terminal 2. 


Negotiations are underway with Hungarian state railway company (MÁV) and the Budapest Transport Center (BKK) to offer seamless transport connections between the railway station at Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. During the first two weeks, Budapest Airport’s ground transport partners, Főtaxi and Airport Shuttle Minibus, will offer special services between the two terminals. Passengers will find further information on Budapest Airport’s website in the coming weeks. 


Starting from 30 May 2012, Terminal 1 and the surrounding public car parks will be closed to the public. Budapest Airport’s offices will remain in Terminal 1, and will be accessible via Gate B only. General aviation and air cargo remain operational in the area near Terminal 1, as before. 


Budapest Airport would like to thank all Terminal 1 airline operators for their cooperation and understanding during this difficult period for the entire Hungarian aviation market, and look forward to working with them to optimize their operations at the more modern Terminal 2, with its enhanced facilities for passengers.
