When will be the day when EK flies to Budapest?

Also how does this work? Wouldn't have been better for EK to divert to an airport that has regular EK Flights?

The most important consideration is the severity of the "technical fault". If there is room for extra time to an airport with EK facilities than they would certainly try to go there, but if the problem warrants an immediate landing, the pilots (have to) go to the nearest airport with a suitable runway.

From what i have read on other forums (pprune) a smoke alarm was triggered.

So i guess that Budapest was the closest airport to land at.



Children should only be allowed on aircraft if 1. Muzzled and heavily sedated 2. Go as freight

Almost.

They also need to choose an airport with the facility to deal with the emergency.

Exactly. This is basically what i meant but did not spell it out clearly enough, as most aiports with a suitable runway would also have matching emergency services.
