Planes circle Kecskemét, fueling talk of commercial flights

City

After residents of Kecskemét reported seeing a WizzAir commercial jet flying around the city for a few hours on Monday, officials confirmed today that more WizzAir jets were practicing "touch-and-go maneurvers" – a landing followed by a quick take-off – in the runway of the airport.

This news fueled speculation that the Kecskemét airport, which is now only used for military purposes, is being readied for commercial use. Local municipal officials had already discussed this possibility.

The video below, recorded by the airport's fire brigade, shows an aircraft performing touch-and-go maneuvers.
