EgyptAir launches Budapest to Hurghada

EgyptAir now has two non-stop routes to Budapest: from Cairo and Hurghada. From left to right are: Ahdy Gamal, District Manager Hungary, Czechia & Slovakia for EgyptAir; Balázs Bucsi, Airline Development Specialist, Budapest; Edit Péntek, Reservation & Ticketing Manager for EgyptAir; Zsuzsa Váczi, Airline & Travel Trade Manager, Budapest, Andrea Szép, Country Manager for EgyptAir; and Csilla Orczán, Total Quality & GH Manager, Budapest.

EgyptAir began its second route to Budapest on 28 November with service from Hurghada.

Operating once-weekly on Saturdays using A220-300s, the 2,582-kilometre route supplements the carrier’s existing twice-weekly operation from Cairo.

Booking data obtained via OAG Traffic Analyser shows that Hurghada was EgyptAir’s second-largest transit O&D over Cairo to/from Budapest in 2019. It was behind Luxor but ahead of Sharm El Sheikh.

Multiple airlines have operated Budapest – Hurghada over the years, including Travel Service Hungary, Air Cairo, Wizz Air, Smartwings, and, now, EgyptAir.
