First Moscow-to-Hévíz flight lands
The first scheduled flight from Moscow, carrying close to 180 passengers, landed at Hévíz-Balaton Airport on Sunday; the flight will be operating once a week.
In anticipation of the new route, Hévíz mayor Gábor Papp told local business daily Napi Gazdaság last Friday that his town’s airport would see a 35,000 to 37,000 increase in passenger count (or percentage-wise, a minimum 17.1% year-on-year uppage) in 2014, up from 29,000 in ’13.
In late February, state tourism agency Magyar Turizmus announced that Hévíz was once again the second-most popular tourist destination in Hungary in 2013, trailing only Budapest.
