Budapest Airport to revamp runways 1 and 2

The operator confirmed that runway 1 is scheduled to be closed from the end of March, and runway 2 will be closed down at the end of May for no more than two weeks each.

Budapest Airport has announced that it will complete maintenance and development work on the runways at Ferenc Liszt International Airport before the summer peak.

The operator confirmed that runway 1 is scheduled to be closed from the end of March, and runway 2 will be closed down from the end of May for no more than two weeks each.

The airport confirmed that it can ensure safe departure and arrival of the aircraft during single-runway operation and said scheduled runway closures will not cause any disruption to air traffic.

Alongside maintenance of runways 1 and 2, holding point near the runway-taxiway crossing where the aircraft will wait directly before the take-off will be brought closer to the runway, and therefore the aircraft will have a shorter taxi route after clearance for the take-off. This will result in shorter turnaround times for flights.

Installation of a state-of-the-art instrument landing system was completed last year to assist in the safe landing and take-off of the aircraft in low visibility conditions.
