Number of Direct Flights Between Hungary, China to Double

Transport

An agreement reached between Hungary and China will double the number of direct passenger and cargo flights between the two countries to 42 a week, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said in Ningbo on Tuesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Cargo deliveries need to be accelerated as economic and trade cooperation between Hungary and China "breaks records", Szijjártó said at the China CEEC Expo. Hungary is already the "entry point" in Central Europe for Chinese cargo flights, he added.

Szijjártó said the 2025 target date for completing the upgrade of the Budapest-Belgrade railway line had been highlighted at talks during his visit to China.

The line is set to become part of a corridor for shipping Chinese goods to Europe.
