Budapest Airport, the operator of Ferenc Liszt International Airport announced the partial reopening of Pier 1, and the complete reopening of Pier B's transit area this month.
According to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal, Pier 1 will partially reopen to passengers arriving from the Schengen zone, between December 18 and 21. Travelers arriving there will have their documents checked and their body temperature measured in Pier 1. They can then leave the airport via the arrivals level of Terminal 2A.
The entire transit area of Pier B, closed earlier, will be operational from December 18 to January 4. The hall ahead of the passport control booths and passport control will continue to operate unchanged; the medical screening, registration, and entry into Hungary of non-Schengen passengers will still be performed here, as well as on the arrivals level of Terminal 2B.
The decision on entering the country is made by authority personnel on site, based on the conditions defined in the relevant decrees. Document checks and data recording is carried out by the Airport Police Directorate. Since, pursuant to the strict regulations on entering the country, passengers need to be questioned in detail and their data needs to be recorded prior to entry, the document control requires more time than previously, the airport notes.
Number of daily passengers "rhapsodic" during holiday season
The operator says that, with Christmas on the horizon, passenger traffic in December is becoming increasingly rhapsodic, as the number of passengers on a single flight varies between 30 and 200. In order to deal with the possibility of several flights arriving at the same time, Budapest Airport’s terminal operations staff are present in arrivals with an increased headcount.
