Hungary’s commercial air traffic increases by 11.5% y.o.y.
Hungary’s air traffic increased to 700,818 aircraft flying in Hungarian airspace in 2014, up 11.55% from 2013, online business portal napi.hu reported yesterday.
The highest figure ever recorded was due to geopolitical factors, namely the Ukrainian crisis and the opening of the Kosovo high altitude airspace, while the traffic at Budapest airport has shown moderate growth after several years of decline.
Air traffic control company HungaroControl Zrt.’s profit reached HUF 1.52 bln and its sales revenue is expected to grow this year, along with increasing air traffic, which was 16% more in the first five months of 2015 as compared to the same period a year ago.
