Budapest’s Liszt Ferenc International Airport is scheduled to undergo an expansion with the addition of a hotel and a jet bridge that will serve low-cost airline passengers, Mihály Hardy, spokesperson for operator Budapest Airport, told Hungarian daily Magyar Idők today.

The construction is expected to begin next year and from 2018 the construction of a new terminal building will be launched, Hardy said. According to the spokesperson the 200 meter-long jet bridge will help passengers of low-fare airlines walk directly to the planes from the main building.

Noting that the airports passenger numbers recently surpassed a record by exceeding the ten million mark this year, the operator has no other option but to expand the facility due to the increasing passenger traffic, Hardy added.
