The CEO said that the new bridge could be inaugurated in 2018 after a tender for its construction is called in the coming year.
The operator is also expanding and developing its passenger security checkpoints and parking lot, he added.
Budapest Airport has postponed plans to build a cargo base at the airport pending "further dynamic growth", Lammers said, adding that Cargo City is not expected to be inaugurated before 2018-2019.
The operatorʼs capital expenditures come to about €15 mln a year, MTI said.
Lammers noted that Budapest is the final destination for about 99% of the passengers who arrive at the airport.
