SunExpress’ summer schedule from Budapest Airport
Budapest Airport has announced that SunExpress will increase its operations from the Hungarian gateway with the launch of a weekly service to the popular resort of Izmir from 18 June 2022.
“It’s great to see SunExpress further expand its operations from Budapest this summer,” said Balázs Bogáts, Head of Airline Development, Budapest Airport. “The introduction to Izmir, a destination previously only served by charter, will see a key city added to our route map. We’re sure that SunExpress’ new service will prove popular to Turkey’s third largest city (in terms of population), best known for its Western-orientation and therefore an in-demand tourist attraction for summer vacations.”
SunExpress’ Izmir link joins its established service to Antalya, while Pegasus Airlines offers connections to Sabiha Gökçen and Turkish Airlines operates to Istanbul from Budapest.
“With a choice of three carriers offering an increasing range of services to Turkey, our passengers are provided with the option of many different frequencies and services to this exquisite transcontinental country,” Bogáts added.
Hungary’s capital city airport will operate 35 weekly flights to Turkey during S22, with SunExpress having a 13% share of the market. All SunExpress flights from Budapest will be flown by the carrier’s fleet of 189-seat 737-800s.
