The organisers of the air transport industry’s premier charity-sportive event – “The Race to Find the Fastest Airline in the World” – have announced that this year’s run will take place at 11.00 on Saturday 3 September 2016 on Budapest Airport’s 13R-31L.

Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) is officially “The Fastest Airline in the World”
SWISS is the airline to beat after it soared to triumph last year, knocking reigning champions, Aer Lingus, off the podium and crossing the line ahead of all other 920 competitors.
Continuing its support of this year’s Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run 4.0, Airbus has confirmed it will once again be main title sponsor of the event, comprising two race distances – 10km (four runway lengths) and 5km (a distance favoured by sofa-loving revenue management executives). “Airbus is extremely proud to be the main sponsor and support the benefiting good causes of this leading sports charity event,” stated Chris Buckley – EVP Sales Europe, Airbus, who personally led a 12-strong team of enthusiastic runners down Budapest’s runway last year.
