Budapest Mayor Favours Ban On Night Flights
Budapest mayor István Tarlós and officials overseeing civilian flights are initiating legal amendments in order to reduce noise and air pollution near Budapest’s Liszt Ferenc International Airport.

Air traffic authority HungaroControl supports a ban on flights between midnight and 5 a.m., one of the biggest problems for those living near the airport, according to Magyar Nemzet.

Tarlós told the newspaper that the long-term goal is to make sure that cargo and military planes use an airport further away. However, passenger transport cannot cease at Ferihegy, he said.

The cabinet is a full partner in solving the problems caused by planes arriving at and departing from Liszt Ferenc airport, he added.
