Budapest Airport, the operator of Liszt Ferenc International Airport, received the “Airport of the Year” accolade, in the 4-20 million passenger category, from the CAPA Center for Aviation, an announcement issued this morning reveals.

Budapest Airport CEO Jost Lammers accepted the award on behalf of the airport yesterday evening in Helsinki, Finland.

“This award represents especially important feedback for us, since traffic at Budapest Airport is continuously breaking records, and, in addition to positive feedback from passengers, it is of special significance for us that CAPA, one of the world’s leading aviation market research and analysis organizations, has recognized our work,” said Lammers. “The Aviation Award for Excellence is one of the most important accolades that Budapest Airport has won. The expanding offers of Hungarian tourism and the favorable and supportive economic environment have also contributed to this achievement.”

The winners of the award are selected by an international panel of experts based on the research results of two independent, international organizations, CAPA and Heidrick & Struggles.

The CAPA Centre for Aviation, one of the world’s largest aviation market research and analysis organizations was established in 1990.
