The new service becomes the second Scottish destination from the Hungarian capital, adding to the current service operated by Jet2.com to Edinburgh.

  • Wizz Air launched four routes this week across the days between the 10 and the 15 June. London Luton (LTN) and Budapest (BUD) both see the addition of two new destinations. None of the airport pairs launched face direct competition and all operate twice-weekly using the airline’s A320s. The latest route launches mean that Wizz Air now operates to 30 destinations from Luton, and 39 from Budapest according to OAG Schedules Analyser data. Commenting on the expansion by Wizz Air from Budapest, Kam Jandu, Budapest Airport CCO, said: “Wizz Air’s choice of attractive destinations from Budapest continue to meet both leisure and business traveller’s needs. We expect the new services to succeed and be a hit with our customers.” See how Ohrid and Constanta Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
