Budapest in lavish airport opening

Ferihegy Airport Budapest was the recent venue for an extravagant opening of a food court.  Normally these type of events are more low key, but in the case of Budapest whilst the 75% owner and operator is Honchief AirPort, one of the world’s largest independent airport managers, the other 25% as an investment by the Hungarian government.  The opening was also part of the celebrations to rename the 60-year old airport Franz Liszt International and to emphasise its position as a hub for eastern Europe.  Throughput last year was 8.2m passenger.

Dubbed “SkyCourt” the new centrally located building links the existing Terminals 2a and 2b.  It has doubled the commercial area available and provides a wide range of retail outlets, international brands and an improved food and beverage offering.  The contemporary glass structure also offers an impressive view of the apron providing passengers with a unique travel experience.
