Sept 09, 2016: Budapest Airport, Hungarian gateway, has celebrated the arrival of its latest year-round sun connection with the launch of Wizz Air’s twice-weekly service to Portugal’s second largest airport, Porto.

After recording healthy passengers numbers on its Lisbon service launched last March, the ultra-low-cost-carrier’s added its second Portuguese link from Budapest on September 4.

Experiencing a 43 percent increase in indirect passengers to and from Porto last year, the coastal city shows a potential market of 16,000 passengers for Budapest.

Using its A320 fleet, Wizz Air connects the Hungarian gateway to Porto for the first time, facing no direct competition on either of its Portuguese services.

Kam Jandu, CCO, Budapest Airport, commented, “The high number of indirect passengers makes us confident that this route is going to be a great success for Wizz Air, serving as the perfect city break for both Hungarian and Portuguese passengers.”
