Gov't to upgrade airport in NW Hungary
Innovation and Technology Minister László Palkovics outlined plans to transform the Székesfehérvár-Börgönd airport, one of the country's oldest, into a center for recreational flight, instruction and research, after a meeting with local leaders on Saturday, state news wire MTI reports.
Palkovics said the government has earmarked HUF 750 million for preparations to upgrade the airport in the northwest of the country, making it suitable for small corporate aircraft, recreational aircraft and pilot instruction as well as for drone development. He added that the developments would extend to the neighboring industrial park.
He said the Székesfehérvár campus of Óbuda University, which is getting HUF 30 billion in support for a new technology research center, would be able to use the airport for aviation research and development.
The airport development is being undertaken in the framework of the government's Modern Cities program.
