All airlines to operate from Liszt Ferenc Terminal 2B from May 30
All airlines operating from Budapest will use Liszt Ferenc International Airport's Terminal 2 from the end of May, airport operator Budapest Airport said in a statement on Thursday.
The remaining airlines who use Terminal 1 will switch over to Terminal 2 on the evening of May 29 and the early morning of May 30.
Terminal 2A will handle arrivals from the Schengen zone and Terminal 2B arrivals from outside of the area.
Budapest Airport said it is in talks with state-owned railway company MÁV and the Budapest Public Transportation Centre (BKK) on providing transport links between stops at Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. It added that Főtaxi and Minibusz would offer services between the two points during the first two weeks after the switch over.
Budapest Airport said earlier it would temporarily close Terminal 1 after a review of its business plan following the grounding of troubled national carrier Malév.
