The Liverpool flight will be launched on March 23, Keflavik will be available from March 30 and Ibiza on June 18. Bookings for all three are already available on Wizz Air’s website.
Liverpool is on the estuary of the river Mersey in northern England. The flight will depart on Wednesdays and Sundays at 16.50 and arrive in Liverpool at 18.45 local time. It will then take off at 19.15 after a turnaround time of 30 minutes, and return to Budapest at 22.40.
The flight to Keflavik International Airport will leave Budapest on Wednesday afternoons, at 13.55, arriving in Iceland after five hours at 18.45. Departure from Keflavik is at 19.15 and the aircraft then lands in the Hungarian capital at 23.55.
The service to the Spanish island of Ibiza, known for its vibrant nightlife, takes off on Saturdays at 15.20 and lands at 18.10. On the return leg, the flight leaves at 18.45 and arrives at Budapest Airport at 21.25. This summer, Wizz Air will fly not only to Ibiza but also to Palma de Mallorca, and its route network features other Spanish destinations, namely Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga, Alicante and Tenerife.
“Budapest Airport is delighted to welcome the launch of these new Wizz Air flights, whereby the number of destinations accessible directly from Budapest with Wizz Air has increased to 46,” said Kam Jandu, chief commercial officer for Budapest Airport.
“The Liverpool flight has long been missing from our route network and is likely to be popular with business travellers and tourists alike, including football fans. Ibiza and Iceland are two very different but equally exciting destinations, which attract visitors from all corners of the globe.”
Ryanair celebrates 6 million passengers
Ryanair has celebrated its 6,000,000th customer at Budapest Airport since it commenced operations in 2007.
As the 6,000,000th passenger was flying to Eilat, the event was honoured by Israeli Ambassador Ilan Mor. “Israel welcomes Ryanair flying to Eilat. The southern city of Israel is a fizzy resort city with wide variety of hotels, beautiful beaches and plenty of activities. I do hope that many Hungarian tourists will visit this ultimate all-year holiday destination, and will go and see the other exciting tourism places all over in the beautiful Israel,” the Ambassador said.
