Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, has launched a brand new direct flight between Glasgow and the Hungarian capital of Budapest. It is the first time Budapest has been served as a destination from Glasgow Airport and the airline will now operate a year round, twice weekly service.
Budapest, which is one of the largest cities in Central Europe, straddles the Danube River and is renowned for its architecture, rich history and culture. Wizz Air chose to add direct flights between the two cities following a poll carried out in the Hungarian media, with the majority of participants placing Glasgow at the top of their wish list.
Wizz Air first moved to Glasgow Airport in March 2013 and the addition of Budapest brings the total number of destinations it serves from Glasgow to six. It currently operates services to the Polish cities of Warsaw, Poznan, Katowice and Gdansk. From 16 September it will also operate a twice weekly service to Lublin in eastern Poland.
