Ferihegy security status downgrade confirmed

Ferihegy International Airport was downgraded to the "unclear" security category after objects that should have been screened out passed through security checks in a European Union review, government commission for air travel Attila Márton said on Tuesday, confirming a press report.

The review of new compliance with a new EU security directive in force from April 28 found almost a dozen problem points, Márton said. The review was carried out at the end of May, he added.

Airport operator Budapest Airport has already set up a working group to coordinate efforts to put the airport back in the "clear" category, Márton said. The airport will be reviewed again in one-and-a-half months to three months at the earliest, he added.

Budapest Airport communications director Mihály Hardy, speaking at the same press conference, said most of the problems uncovered in the review had been resolved. (MTI-ECONEWS)
