Budapest Airport joins forces with National Tourism Office.

Thursday 8th December 2011

Partners to promote Budapest to inbound visitors this winter.

Budapest Airport is once again lending its support to the Budapest Winter Invitation (BWI) campaign initiated by the Hungarian National Tourist Office to drive tourism and enhance the number of flight bookings into the Hungarian capital between now and 31 March 2012.

Foreign visitors are being enticed with a range of highly attractive promotions including a free night's stay in one of the city's three, four and five star hotels, a free visit to a traditional spa and a discounted Budapest city tourist card. When foreign visitors spend three or four nights at a participating hotel, they can enjoy the last night on a complimentary basis as well as a free visit to a spa. Equally, hotel guests can take advantage of the discounted Budapest Card to discover the capital with free public transport and free or reduced entry to more than 100 attractions, venues, and restaurants. Tourists are encouraged to visit to take advantage of the BWI promotion.

In addition to Budapest Airport, Wizz Air and travel portals Expedia, and Legenda Ltd are also supporting the campaign. Kam Jandu, Director of Aviation at Budapest Airport said: "Budapest Airport is pleased to support the Hungarian Tourist Office with this highly popular promotion. Budapest is an attractive winter destination and is the perfect venue for relaxing and rejuvenating at one of the city's historical spas or for visiting one of the city's world famous attractions. We look forward to welcoming more tourists to Budapest this winter."

According to the Hungarian National Tourist Office, previous BWI campaigns have successfully generated between 25,000 and 70,000 extra guest nights over the course of the winter campaign. Target markets of the BWI campaign include: the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Nordic countries, Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania and Serbia.
