“Our infrastructure investments go hand-in-hand with the growth of both passenger traffic and cargo volumes,” says Lammers. “The new 10,000sqm Pier B handed over last year has largely increased the comfort of our passengers flying to and from the non-Schengen destinations. We are planning a whole new series of investments into the airport infrastructure by the year 2024 ranging up to €700 million, including the design and construction of a brand new terminal building next to the existing Terminal 2. This year we will hand over the new Cargo City of 20,000sqm warehouse area that will better serve the needs of the Hungarian export-oriented economy and the logistics companies behind them», says Jost Lammers, CEO Budapest Airport.
Budapest Airport has already launched a programme of internal improvements at both Terminals 2A and 2B in the last two years to increase passenger comfort. In the first half of this year, two more passenger security lanes will be installed, while washrooms, lounges and passenger waiting areas will be refurbished, enlarged or their capacity increased.
Indeed, over €450 million has been invested into developing and modernising the airport and its infrastructure in the last 12 years. The flagship project was the construction of a new central terminal building called SkyCourt, connecting Terminal 2A and 2B, with state-of-the-art passenger security control and baggage systems.
