Further French connections at Budapest Airport

Budapest Airport celebrates the commencement of Transavia France’s second link from the Hungarian gateway. The arrival of the carrier’s twice-weekly service to Nantes sees Budapest offer direct flights to seven destinations in France this summer as the latest addition joins Paris Beauvais, CDG and Orly airports, plus Bordeaux, Lyon and Nice.

Celebrating its sixth route launch in almost as many weeks, Budapest Airport has marked Transavia France’s further commitment to the Hungarian gateway as the carrier launches a twice-weekly service to Nantes. Joining the airline’s existing link to Paris Orly, Transavia France’s latest investment sees a 50% increase in seat capacity for the airline from Budapest this summer.

“This is the perfect link for Transavia France to start,” explains Balázs Bogáts, Head of Airline Development, Budapest Airport. “Both cities are known popular tourist attractions, therefore I’ve no doubt that each destination will be equally attractive for passengers from either end of the route.”
