Passenger numbers in July and August were more than 1.6 million, and were also above 1.5 million in September.
The monthly number of take-offs and landings was around 11,570, higher than previously since the financial crisis, but still below the 12,000 all-time record set in 2006, when Malév Hungarian Airlines was still flying.
Most passengers traveled between Budapest and London, followed by passengers coming and going to Frankfurt, Paris, Brussels, and Tel Aviv, jetfly.hu reported.
