GOVT OFFICIAL: BUDAPEST-BRASOV FLIGHT IMPORTANT STEP FOR BOTH CITIES

 

The launch of a Budapest-Brasov (Brassó) service by Wizz Air is an important step for both cities and countries, a government official said at Liszt Ferenc International airport on Tuesday. Ferenc Antal, a deputy state secretary at the national economy ministry and a member of the board of Liszt Ferenc International operator Budapest Airport, said the flight operating three times a week would contribute to the further strengthening of business and cultural ties between Hungary and Romania. Wizz Air corporate and ESG officer Yvonne Moynihan said the flight is the sixth new route from Budapest announced by the airline this summer, adding that more services will be launched later. Budapest Airport deputy chief executive Balázs Bogáts noted that borders controls with Romania have been lifted as the country has joined the EU’s passport-free Schengen zone.
