Turkish Airlines yesterday announced it would raise the number of its daily flights between Budapest and Istanbul to four as of July 3, Hungary’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (KKM) told Hungarian news agency MTI.

The ministry added that the four flights would temporarily be operated in the summer timetable until October in the first phase. The ministry noted that the airlines carried 238,000 passengers to Budapest in 2014, which could rise to 280,000 with the fourth daily flight.

The ministry added that Turkish Airlines anticipates to soon double the number of Turkish passengers visiting Hungary from the current 60,000 a year and the number of Hungarians travelling to Turkey from the current 100,000 a year.

Turkish Airlines launched its Budapest-Istanbul-San Francisco flight on Monday, making it the airlinesʼ eleventh destination on the American continent.
