Budapest seems in favour

Air Baltic and Qatar Airways, two somewhat diverse carriers, are in the news this week in respect of Budapest.

With regard to Air Baltic, the fast expanding Riga-based national carrier of Latvia is to introduce a four times per week Riga – Budapest service on 14 May operated by a Bombardier Q400 propjet.  Flight time for the two-class operation is 2hrs 15mins. 

Qatar Airways last week inaugurated a non-stop flight from Budapest to Doha which will also operate four times weekly.  The service will be flown by a Airbus A320 featuring 12 seats in Business Class and up to 165 in Economy.  The Budapest hub will provide passengers with connections to Scandinavia, Russia and the CIS in one direction and the whole of the Gulf region in the other.
