LOT Polish Airlines commits to Budapest Airport

Budapest Airport and LOT Polish Airlines have announced a significant commitment to the future of the Hungarian gateway’s network development. The European flag carrier confirms it will be base one aircraft and add two further routes from Budapest later this summer. A member of Star Alliance, LOT will become one of the main hub airlines at the airport, with the investment also opening new connection opportunities for other European markets, which in turn will advance passenger flows through Budapest.

Commenting on the news, Jost Lammers, CEO, Budapest Airport enthused: “We’ve always had a successful partnership with LOT Polish Airlines so it’s a proud moment to see the commitment the airline is making, not only to the airport but to Hungary as a country. Growing from just a multi-daily service to Warsaw in 2017, the airline has advanced to carrying over a quarter of a million passengers a year from Budapest. The announcement of further growth in 2019 shows that the airline is performing well at our airport, and that it is looking to further advance its presence here.”
