Some 88,827 passengers traveled through Budapest Airport in May, which is nearly four times the greatly reduced traffic registered in May 2020, at the height of the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.

With the level of vaccination against the coronavirus increasing and the gradual abolishment of travel restrictions, a moderate increase was observable in passenger numbers; passenger traffic grew by 37% in May, compared to April 2021. The propensity to travel is clearly bringing passengers back to the airport, Budapest Airport says.

Concurrently with the abolishment of travel restrictions within the EU, Budapest Airport is continuously working on expanding its route network. Holidaymakers can choose from 89 popular destinations. Amongst others, 11 Greek cities and islands are available directly – which is a new record. Destinations in Turkey, Cyprus, and Croatia, are also accessible again via the airport, the press release notes.
