Budapest Airport's Fast Track gains in popularity.

Budapest Airport reports that its highly convenient Fast Track service which is now available to all passengers utilising the Central European hub is rapidly gaining in popularity.

The airport welcomes Hungary's largest airline Wizzair as its first low cost carrier subscriber along with new airlines to Fast Track, Finnair, Air France and KLM. The new subscribers now complement the previous users of the Fast Track service including Aegean, Air Baltic, Alitalia, Qatar and Turkish Airlines.

Fast Track features an express security channel and is designed to bypass airport security queues to ease and shorten the travel process for passengers, reducing the time taken to get in to the airside departure hall to shop, relax or catch their flight without delay.

Initially introduced in July 2012, Fast Track is available at no extra charge to all first class/premium passengers from their participating airlines when booking a flight. In addition, economy class passengers or any low cost airline passengers may also benefit from access to the service by pre-purchasing the product directly from their airline during booking, via travel agencies or by visiting one of the three recently introduced sales points at Terminal 2A and 2B.

Kam Jandu, Director of Aviation at Budapest Airport comments:

"We are very pleased to see that more and more airlines are choosing to subscribe to the Fast Track service for the benefit of their passengers.
The Wizzair subscription is particularly good news as it represents the first of the low cost airlines to participate in delivering a better product for their eligible passengers. In addition we are very pleased that Air France/KLM are leading the way for large European full service airlines in recognising the benefits for their high value passengers by providing Fast Track to them on a complimentary basis."
