Canada’s Air Transat to launch weekly flights to Budapest
Canadian airline Air Transat announced today that it scheduled to launch chartered weekly flights connecting Toronto and Montréal with Budapest from June 2015, enabling Budapest Airport to provide travelers with direct trans-Atlantic routes again. The airline said it will use a wide-body Airbus A 330-200 for the route.
The first aircraft is scheduled to arrive to Budapest on June 18 at 11:10 am local time. The plane is to offer 345 seats with 333 economy and 12 Club Class places. The new route would enable Budapest Airport to offer essential trans-Atlantic connection to destinations in North-America.
"All the preliminary research shows there is real demand for this kind of service both in the leisure and the business segment and will soon lead to increase of frequencies as early as possible," Budapest Airport CEO Jost Lammers said.
