Liszt Ferenc Airport passenger numbers edge up in 2013
Passenger numbers at Liszt Ferenc International Airport rose slightly year-on-year to 8,520,000 in 2013 from 8,504,000, Jost Lammers, CEO of operator Budapest Airport Rt, informed local news daily Magyar Nemzet yesterday.
Lammers said Liszt Ferenc’s Terminal 1 would remain closed for the time being, adding that Budapest Airport was waiting for an outside investor to build a cargo base and an airport hotel.
Terminal 1 was closed and the cargo base investment postponed after troubled national carrier Malev was grounded early in 2012.
Lammers forecast a 3.4% increase in passengers at Liszt Ferenc International Airport in Budapest in 2014 “if nothing unforeseen happens,” according to national news service MTI.
