No scheduled flights will be allowed to take off or land at Budapest’s international Liszt Ferenc Airport between midnight and 5 am from August on, under an agreement signed by the city and the innovation and technology ministry on Tuesday.

Mayor István Tarlós said, however, that the night ban will not cover “exceptional situations” in which flights could be granted a landing permit.

László Palkovics, the technology minister, said that those violating the ban will face a fine, while people living close to the airport will get a government subsidy to put in soundproof windows.
