Too much for Ryanair – runs away from Budapest


The Irish low fares airline Ryanair Ltd will suspend its Budapest flight between November 4 and December 19, because the airport costs at the Budapest airport are among the highest ones in Europe, announced the company.

Also, the air fares in winter are low, and oil price is $140 a barrel. The temporary pause might result in 27,000 less passengers arriving in Budapest during this period, said Ryanair’s deputy CEO, adding that this will cause losses for Budapest, for the airport and for Hungary’s tourism industry.

According to Irish press reports; Ryanair will also reduce the number of flights at other airports during the winter season. E.g. there will be 900,000 less passengers leaving London by Ryanair, than last winter. Krakow, Palma and Salzburg will also have to do without Ryanair’s services in the period of November 4 - December 19. (Gazdasági Rádió)
