ParkCloud revs up for the Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run

ParkCloud Budapest

In it to win it! Ready and aiming to take pole position in this year’s Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run are Team ParkCloud. Warming up ready for the 1 September race are: Front End Developer, Nathaniel Roe; Marketing Assistant, Sarah Dyson; Account Manager, Julio Calvo; and MD Mark Pegler. Join them and many more in taking part in this year’s event which is helping amazing charities, including international child cancer causes and a Hungarian charity assisting with the inclusion of handicapped people in sports. So sign-up today for one of aviation’s leading charity events.

Earlier this year, ParkCloud announced its contract renewal with Budapest Airport – a long-standing partner for over four years. The renewal builds upon the success of the previous contract, offering passengers driving into the airport the option of reserving parking at all of its on-site parking facilities. Effective collaboration has seen extensive growth in booking numbers across all six on-site car park locations, underlining the increasing customer appetite for reserved parking options. Having made a big success in this sector, the company is now hoping to take pole position at the Runway Run.

Meet the ParkCloud team 

Hoping to park up in pole position at Budapest Airport, ParkCloud’s fab four comprise of:

  • Mark Pegler – MD;
  • Nathaniel Roe – Front End Developer;
  • Sarah Dyson – Marketing Assistant;
  • Julio Calvo – Account Manager.

Paul Hogan PPS Publications

As part of the Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run fundraising drive, anna.aero Publisher, Paul Hogan, took part in last weekend’s RideLondon 100-mile cycle race around the capital, promoting our core sponsors – Airbus and Qatar Airways. As the Northern European heatwave gave way to dismal 12°C temperatures and rain, Hogan’s race still managed to raise a handy €5,000 for 3H, a UK charity which provides holidays to the disabled and their carers.
