Airlines rush to Budapest to replace Malév

14 February 2012

Ryanair has swooped in to take on 26 additional routes from the Budapest airport after Hungarian national carrier Malév suddenly ceased all flights Feb. 3 in response to an “‘unsustainable'” financial situation. Industry analysts say the Irish low-cost airline is just the first of a swarm of companies that will try to expand routes to Budapest now that Malév is out of the running.

On the heels of Ryanair’s announcement, several other European carriers, including Lufthansa and Air Berlin, have said they plan to increase services to Budapest to fill in the hole left by Malév’s services to the city, which accounted for nearly 40 percent of all the air traffic at the Budapest airport.
