Ryanair Opens 5 New Budapest Routes
The 'world’s favourite airline', or so they claim, yesterday announced at a special press event at the InterContinental Budapest Hotel that it will open 5 new routes from Liszt Ferenc International Airport to Birmingham, Bologna, Bristol, Dublin and London (Stansted Airport) from March 2012. They say this will deliver 200,000 passengers per year, and create up to 200 local jobs at Budapest Airport.

Ryanair celebrated its new Budapest routes by releasing 1 million seats, from €9.99, for travel on Tues, Wed and Thurs in late February and early March. These promo fares are available for booking until midnight Thursday (26th Jan).

Ryanair’s 5 new Budapest routes go on sale via www.ryanair.com today.

In Budapest, Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary said, “Now Hungarian consumers/ visitors can beat the recession and escape Wizzair’s high fares by switching to Ryanair’s lowest fares and our no fuel surcharge guarantee.

UPDATE: On 3 Feb Ryanair confirmed it will base 4 new Boeing 737-800 planes at Budapest Airport commencing Friday 17th February, with 31 routes added and new fares starting from EURO 9.99.
