The race to find the ‘Fastest Airline in the World’ returns to Budapest!

More than 1,000 runners lined up on Budapest Airport’s runway for the annual air transport industry’s 10km charity race last year. The Budapest Runway run raised a record-breaking €57,600 for charity in 2018, reaching an overall staggering €190,000 for charity over the last six years.
