Wizz Air's 1st Direct Budapest-Cairo Flight Takes Off
Discount airline Wizz Air launched its first direct flight from Budapest to Cairo this week, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The Egyptian capital is not the only new destination in the country available from Hungary, as the airline also launched flights to Sharm el-Sheikh earlier this fall.
Wizz Air now operates three flights per week to both Cairo and Sharm el-Sheikh.
"We are pleased to see that the expansion of our flights to Egypt is a clear sign of the growth and deepening of economic and tourism relations between our countries. Our second route to Cairo demonstrates not only real market demand, but also our commitment to offer our passengers an ever-expanding choice. It is great that this growth is being achieved by our flagship airline partner Wizz Air in such a culturally rich destination," said Kam Jandu, CEO of Budapest Airport.
"We are delighted that after Hurghada, we now have Sharm el-Sheikh and Cairo among the Egyptian destinations included in Wizz Air's Budapest offer. We believe in this region, we see the strong demand for flights to Egypt and we are confident that the two new destinations launched in October will also be very popular with our passengers," said Zsuzsa Trubek, communications manager at Wizz Air.
