Air Canada Rougeʼs flight from Toronto-Pearson arrived to Budapest’s Liszt Ferenc International Airport on Saturday morning, further extending the carrier’s presence in the Central European region, a press release issued on the day of arrival says.

The airline said it will operate three flights a week, departing Toronto on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and return Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from Budapest, with the service operating until October 15. The service offers customers the most seats between North America and Budapest of any airline, according to the press statement. 

“We are pleased to add Budapest, a city rich in heritage along the banks of the Danube, to our growing international network,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines, at Air Canada. “While an important tourist market, there are also many people of Hungarian heritage in North America and this new service will make it convenient for family, friends and relatives to visit one another by connecting through our Toronto-Pearson global hub. Budapest is the second Central European destination we have introduced this summer, with Prague recently launched and Warsaw to commence operating June 14.”
