If you’re planning to fly into Budapest, you’ll be delighted to know that Budapest Airport and Ferenc Liszt International Airport have been making waves in the aviation industry. Over the past 18 months, the airport has garnered an impressive 28 awards and accolades, cementing its position as one of the best airports in Europe.

Achievements and Rewards

Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Budapest Airport has not only recovered but has also closed its second profitable year since the outbreak. This success can be attributed to the airport’s continuous efforts to improve its services and facilities, which have been recognized both nationally and internationally.

One of the most significant achievements for Budapest Airport was being named the best airport in Europe in the category of airports with 15-25 million passengers by Airports Council International (ACI). This prestigious award is based on a survey that assesses service quality at nearly 400 international airports, taking into account 30 performance indicators and passenger feedback.

In addition to the ACI award, Budapest Airport also received a four-star rating from Skytrax, an international aviation research organization. This upgrade in rating is a testament to the airport’s commitment to providing top-notch services and facilities to its passengers.

Sustainability is another area where Budapest Airport has excelled. The airport has achieved level 4+ “Transition” on a scale of 5 in ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation scheme, making it the first airport in the Central European region to attain this certification. This achievement confirms that the airport fully offsets its direct carbon emissions and is working with its partners to reduce emissions.

Budapest Airport’s marketing and communication efforts have also been recognized, with the airport winning several awards for its innovative campaigns. The “Fly into work – Stars at the airport” series, produced by Budapest Airport and MediaFactory, has won multiple Hungarian and international awards, including the IPRA Golden World Awards and the European Excellence Awards.
