Turkish Airlines To Raise The Number Of Budapest-Istanbul Flights To Four From July


Turkish Airlines will raise the number of its daily flights between Budapest and Istanbul-Atatürk Airport to four from July 3, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs disclosed on Wednesday.

The fourth flight will only be operated under the summer timetable, until October, for the moment, the ministry told MTI.

It said that Turkish Airlines carried 238 000 passengers to Budapest in 2014, which could rise to 280  000 with the fourth daily flight.

The airline aims to soon double the number of Turkish passengers visiting Hungary from the current 60 000 a year and the number of Hungarians travelling to Turkey from the current 100 000 a year, it said.

According to the Ministry, the number of air passengers between Turkey and Hungary has dynamically increased as a result of the government’s “Eastern Opening” policy and interest from Turkey, which necessitated the return to four flights daily between the two cities. The last, fourth flight will depart each day at 16 pm from Istanbul and at 18 pm from Budapest.
