Budapest Airport scoops CAPA Airport Marketing Award

Thursday 29th November 2012

Hard on the heels of its success at Routes Europe, Budapest Airport has once more been acclaimed for its marketing prowess with the accolade of the 2012 Airport Marketing Award for Excellence (for airports handling between 5-15 million passengers) from CAPA - Centre for Aviation.

CAPA, a leading global provider of independent aviation market intelligence, analysis and data, applauded Budapest for its achievement amidst a particularly strong field of competition. The distinguished panel of international judges recognised that Budapest Airport had displayed great initiative in implementing an outstanding marketing programme for attracting airlines over the past 18 months.

Now in its 10th year, the CAPA Awards for Excellence which comprise eight categories have previously been confined to the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions. This year CAPA have extended the Awards to recognise global achievement.

The prestigious Awards ceremony took place at a Gala Reception yesterday evening, November 28th at The InterContinental Grand Stanford Hotel in Hong Kong as part of CAPA's high level World Aviation Summit being held on 28/29 November 2012. Kam Jandu, Aviation Director for Budapest Airport accepted the Award on behalf of the Airport.

Kam Jandu said: "We are absolutely delighted to be recognised again for our outstanding marketing ability particularly given the stiff competition. This Award represents the combined efforts of the entire marketing team at Budapest Airport. We are immensely proud to accept it and it is particularly gratifying to have our achievements acknowledged by industry experts."

Budapest Airport has regularly featured in the roll call of winning or highly commended airports, last year scooping the title as overall winner of the Routes Europe Airport Marketing Award.
