Budapest Airport has announced a boost in the gateway’s capacity this winter to Edinburgh and Odesa, with the confirmation of Wizz Air’s latest new schedule. As the home-based airline launches a three times weekly service to Scotland’s capital city and a twice-weekly link to the Ukrainian city of Odesa, Budapest will be able to offer a daily flight to Edinburgh as Wizz Air joins Jet2 and Ryanair on the route while Odesa becomes a new destination on the airport’s route map.
Set to begin on 21 December, the addition of the Hungarian carrier’s new link to Edinburgh will see a total of more than 82,000 seats on offer from Budapest to Scotland through the coming winter season. Edinburgh becomes Wizz Air’s second destination to the highlands after its twice-weekly link to the cultural hub of Glasgow.
“The Scottish capital, with its old town and new town both being UNESCO World Heritage Sites, is the second most visited city in the UK by tourists. Wizz Air will not only be increasing our capacity to Scotland but to Ukraine as well, meeting growing demand and allowing us to offer our customers extended flight options to each region,” said Balázs Bogáts, head of airline development at Budapest Airport.
