Budapest airport introduces new direct flights to Venice

The latest Venice route addition will accompany 14 new international links introduced this summer alone

Having already celebrated 14 new international links during this summer season, Budapest Airport has announced  a drect flight route to Venice, easyJet’s first link to Italy from the capital.

Seeing an attractive gap in the market, the low-cost-carrier will be connecting Budapest to Venice Marco Polo Airport – the city’s main airport – with a three times a week service from October 31.

Commenting on the new service, Balázs Bogáts, head of Airline Development at Budapest Airport, said that “easyJet’s announcement is great news for Budapest Airport and lovers of the Italian lifestyle alike. With more than 16,000 indirect passengers last year, easyJet’s connection to the famous culture of one of Italy’s largest leisure destinations is clearly in high demand.”

Budapest will now serve ten airports in Italy – including Rome (Fiumicino and Ciampino), Milan (Bergamo and Malpensa), Bari, Naples, Catania, Pisa and Bologna – easyJet’s additional capacity will see the Hungarian gateway offer over 11,000 seats each week to Italy on these ten services.

The low cast carrier operates seven routes from Hungary, the airline’s first route to Italy from Budapest joining London Gatwick, Berlin, Paris, Lyon, Basel and Geneva on the carrier’s network.
