Liverpool John Lennon Airport is off to a flying start already this year with the announcement of a brand new route between Liverpool and the Hungarian capital, Budapest. The route, which will commence in March 2016 will be operated by Wizz Air, the low-cost Central and Eastern European airline.
Operating on Wednesdays and Sundays of each week, the new route will become the airline’s fourth route to be served from Liverpool. Liverpool Airport had a very successful year last year, with plenty of new routes meaning that passenger throughput was up by 8% compared to 2014.
Wizz Air started operations in Liverpool John Lennon Airport in late 2004 with flights operating to the Polish cities of Warsaw and Gdansk. Last year, Wizz Air commenced flights to Riga, the capital city of Latvia.
Passengers wishing to travel on Wizz Air’s new route to Budapest can expect to pay £28.49 each way, which includes all taxes and non-optional charges.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s air service development manager, Paul Winfield said:
“This further commitment by Wizz Air to operations from Liverpool is a further sign of the progress we have been making over the past 12 months and links yet another important European capital city with Liverpool that will have benefits for both business and leisure travellers
We are committed to increasing the range of destinations served from Liverpool to give travellers from across the North West more opportunities to fly from the fastest, easiest, friendliest airport in the region.”
