Budapest Airport welcomes Ryanair’s Billund flights.

Thursday 17th May 2012

Offering Hungarian passengers even more choice of destinations during the summer months, Ryanair has added Billund to its existing summer schedule.

The first flight touches down in the Hungarian capital today, 16 May. Billund is one of 30 routes the Irish airline is operating from Budapest airport, contributing to the growth of tourism in Hungary. Ryanair will operate the route three times per week, on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

Starting from today, Hungarian passengers can benefit from a short break to Billund's LEGOLAND® park, which is one of Denmark's top tourism destinations and the perfect place for a family holiday or short break. Billund has a wide selection of shops and the surrounding area boasts beautiful scenery with nearby towns offering a variety of activities, including museums, a zoo, bars and restaurants.

Kam Jandu, Aviation Director for Budapest Airport, said: "We are delighted that Ryanair has added Billund to our network map, offering travellers from Budapest the chance to visit this unique city. Whether visiting LEGOLAND® or just enjoying a short break in Denmark, I am sure the route will satisfy the outbound community and equally attract more Danish tourists to Budapest with a new direct air connection."

Ryanair's Katarzyna Gaborec, Sales & Marketing Executive CEE said: "Ryanair is delighted to announce a new route to the summer schedule to/from Billund today. Our Hungarian passengers now have an even greater choice for their 2012 summer holidays.
