The 200 m² terrace is currently welcoming passengers with a minimum of functional furnishings and will be given a final design, complete with benches and greenery, at a later stage. With this early opening, Budapest Airport aimed to meet the needs of passengers as quickly as possible.
In response to feedback from passengers, the airport operator started preparing the observation and smokers’ terrace in September 2021.
Taking into account the load-bearing capacity of the terminal’s roof structure, the new terrace was built on the roof of Terminal 2B with a separate, load-bearing steel structure. The main works were completed in just under six months, and the facility opened to passengers already in mid-September.
The terrace provides an excellent view of the terminal apron and also has a covered (non-smoking) section, to allow passengers to enjoy the view even in bad weather.
