Passenger numbers at Liszt Ferenc International reached 266,481 in June, tripling from a month earlier as travel restrictions eased amid increasing Covid immunisation coverage, operator Budapest Airport said on Thursday. Passenger numbers jumped 257% year on year in the second quarter and reached 603,585 for the first half. Airline capacity nearly doubled in Q2, while the number of seats on flights to some popular destinations rose as much as 500%. Passenger numbers averaged around 10,000 a day in June and are “expected to grow significantly” in July and August, Budapest Airport said. Passengers could fly to 90 destinations from Liszt Ferenc in June, still well belo the 153 offered before the pandemic, but that number is expected to climb to 120 in the coming months, the operator added.
