Budapest Airport brought forward the execution of several projects, on account of the low passenger traffic, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The airport operator earlier postponed the installation of a new escalator in Pier 1 by six months on account of the pandemic, but works will now commence at the beginning of April. The development is expected to be completed at the end of June.
The modernization of the elevators at the terminals is also continuing. The elevator connecting the departure and the arrivals levels of Terminal 2A will be refurbished by the end of April. In order to facilitate the background operations at the airport, the goods elevator used to transport oversized bags, taking large bags directly into the baggage sorting hall, will also be refurbished in the near future.
From March 28, the operator is reopening some passenger circulation areas closed earlier at Ferenc Liszt International Airport. The Terminal 2A arrivals hall, as well as Pier 1, will be reopened. In addition, check-in will be available once more at Terminal 2A. From Sunday, passenger security screening will be performed at both Terminals 2A and 2B.
80% of vaccines arriving entered Hungary via Budapest Airport
Up to March 2021, 80% of the more than 3 million doses of vaccines arriving in Hungary entered the country via Budapest Airport, the press release notes. Budapest Airport commenced preparations for the handling of vaccine shipments already in September 2020. In order to make sure that the handling of medical supplies happens as quickly as possible, the airport decided to introduce the CEIV Pharma pharmaceutical logistics standard in Hungary earlier this month.
