Ferenc Liszt International Airport was named "Best Airport in Eastern Europe" for the 10th time in a row at the World Airport Awards held this month.
This is the second major accolade for Ferenc Liszt International Airport in a month. At the beginning of March, ACI chose Budapest Airport as the best airport in Europe among airports with 15-25 million passengers, also based on passenger feedback.
The Skytrax award, presented on Wednesday evening, is based on the World Airport Survey questionnaires, which are completed by air passengers of more than 100 nationalities over the eight-month survey period. The survey asks respondents to rate their travel experience and the various airport services, from arrival, through check-in and security screening, to departure at the boarding gates.
The award was presented during a ceremony at the Passenger Terminal Expo in Amsterdam on March 15.
“It is a great source of pride to see that the hard work of the airport community is seen and appreciated by passengers. We have made great progress in a decade: we have renewed our terminals, expanded our airport services, constructed two new, high-quality passenger piers and a cargo base, introduced family-friendly services, and implemented state-of-the-art security screening technology,” said Chris Dinsdale, the CEO of Budapest Airport.
“We are not stopping on this road, but further development is only possible with expanded capacity. We are only waiting for the building permit for the reopening of Terminal 1, while design and organization works in preparation for the new Terminal 3 are well underway,” he added.
Budapest Airport’s developments over the last four years serving quality, an outstanding passenger experience, a high level of security and sustainability will reach HUF 100 billion by this spring. More information about this series of developments is available here.
