HungaroControl's air traffic controllers directed 47,375 aircraft in June, 167% more than in the same month a year earlier, but still around 55% under pre-crisis levels, the company said.

According to the economic news portal portfolio.hu, the number includes some 7,300 aircraft in high-altitude corridors over Kosovo, which HungaroControl has directed since 2014 at the request of NATO.

Air traffic controllers handled 4,357 takeoffs and landings at Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport, 97% more than in June 2020.

Traffic at the airport was exceptionally high before and after the Euro 2020 matches played in the capital. HungaroContorl said the launch of the European Union digital COVID certificate on July 1 could give new impetus to air travel in the coming period.
