Budapest Airport makes Mykonos link
Budapest Airport celebrated its first link to Mykonos yesterday, as Wizz Air launched its twice-weekly service to the popular resort in Greece. The home-based airline’s new operation will be the airport’s tenth connection to the Greek islands, offering close to 100,000 seats between Hungary and Greece this summer season.
Wizz Air faces no competition on the new route, as Mykonos joins the ultra-low-cost airline’s Greek network from Budapest with the carrier also serving Athens, Corfu, Crete, Rhodes, Santorini, Thessaloniki and Zakynthos.
“Wizz Air has introduced two new additions to our Greek network in the last month as Mykonos now joins the recently-launched link to Santorini,” says Balázs Bogáts, Head of Airline Development, Budapest Airport. “We continue to see demand for such popular destinations and, with the help of our airline partners, we are able to ensure we can focus on offering a wide variety for all our passengers.”
- Budapest Airport is the best airport in the Region, as recognised by Skytrax in seven consecutive years from 2014 to 2020, based on passenger ratings. Budapest Airport has become the lead airport in terms of passenger growth and together with its airline partners is a key contributor to the development of tourism in Hungary and Budapest.
