New Routes From Budapest Plus Frequency Increases

Wed Mar 07, 2012 6:57 pm

Please use this thread to discuss any new route update from any carrier since their will be more to come im sure now Malev is not there anymore.

Please use the other thread about a possible Malev replacement for discussions on that topic.


The First update is Ryanair:


Ryanair will base 5 737-800's at Budapest and open up routes to :

- Billund
- Dusseldorf Weeze

Due to already high demand frequency will be increased on flights to:

- London Stansted
- Paris Beauvais
- Barcelona El Prat

The following once a week flights have been cancelled though:

- Chania
- Rhodes
- Trapani
- Palma

In further news Ryanair aims to reach 2.4 million pax annually with their 30 routes out of BUD which they say will create 2400 jobs, direct and indirect.

This next one is quite interesting, after Ryanair announced BUD - TSF, now Volotea, the new Venice based LCC will start flights to BUD as well.

Volotea will start operations at Budapest Airport on April 25th, following the establishment of its first operating base at Venice’s Marco Polo airport.

The initial route Budapest-Venice Marco Polo will link the two cities three times a week, every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Starting on April 25th, schedules will be as follows:

Budapest-Venice Marco Polo Venice Marco Polo- Budapest
Wednesday 19:30 20:15 17:45 19:05
Friday 20:05 21:40 18:20 19:40
Sunday 13:35 15:10 12:15 13:35


Tickets are available from today starting at €19 one-way, taxes included, at volotea.com.

Lufthansa added Hamburg-Budapest and Berlin-Budapest.

Berlin-Budapest was already planned as part of their buildup at BER when it opens in June though.
Public service announcement: "It's" = "it is". To indicate posession, write "its." Looks wrong, but it's correct grammar

So on BUD-BER LH will go against the new AB service then. Its good to have competition on a route.

Sorry Peet, I didnt see your post, forgot to refresh.

I am really surprised I haven't heard anything from EasyJet, especially since their service is few notches above Ryanair and Wizz and they are also targeting business travellers. They could add flight from their hubs at Madrid, Milan Malpensa, Rome Fiumicino, Liverpool and Manchester and from other cities such as Zurich and Amsterdam.

Maybe it's because U2 doesn't have a/c available, a couple of summers ago, U2 was really short on a/c and coudln't deliver a full schedule, hence it got Titan Airways to supply a/c.
What happened with Malev wasn't that long ago, perhaps they will announce it for their winter 2012/2013 schedule

That's probably the reason but I am surprised they can't find A319/320 on lease or second hand, even only short term, or ask a favour to Airbus. They could also delay some of the aircraft retirements.

Wow, I NEVER saw this one coming. Would the HV flight have a KL codeshare as well?

edit: No info on the Budapest airport website yet, normally they are really fast.

No, they never codeshare if both KL and HV have the same route (see MAD and LIS). Moreover which connecting possibilities would one have with a 23:35 arrival in AMS?

BTW Wasn't Ryanair suppose to fly daily EIN-BUD? If I look at their timetable for S12, I only see 4 weekly.
