Hungary’s Budapest Airport has announced that low cost carrier Wizz Air will commence a five-times weekly service to Vnukovo Airport, Moscow, from September 23.
The route will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays year-round and marks the airline’s debut in Russia. The services will depart Budapest at 06:15, arriving at Vnukovo at 10:40. The return flight will depart at 11:15 and arrive back in Budapest at 11:50 local time.
Furthermore, Wizz Air will launch a new weekly service from Budapest to Hurghada, Egypt, from November 2. The route will operate throughout the winter and is the first direct flight to the Red Sea resort from Budapest. The Saturday service will depart Budapest at 14:45, arriving at Hurghada at 19:30. The return flight will depart at 20:10 and arrive back in Hungary at 23:15.
The latest route announcements follow hard on the heels of the news that Wizz Air will commence a four-times weekly service to Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen Airport from August 2, and a four-times weekly service to the new Dubai World Central Al Maktoum International Airport from October 28. These bring the total number of routes the carrier serves from Budapest to 37.
Budapest Airport’s Aviation Director Kam Jandu commented: “We are delighted to welcome all the new Wizz Air routes to Budapest Airport. The diversity of routes offers passengers considerably more travel options as our route map continues to expand, and demonstrates that Budapest’s location makes it a valuable central European aviation hub.”
