Receiving the esteemed industry award on behalf of the airport, Péter Huszka, COO of Budapest Airport commented: “To earn the ranking as the top airport in Eastern Europe for a second consecutive year is truly a notable achievement for us all at Budapest Airport. The Skytrax Awards are iconic throughout the air transport industry and reflect not only the outstanding service provided to our passengers but also our continued commitment to further improvements. We are highly honoured to retain our position as overall winner in our region, the recognition from our passengers is exceedingly significant for all airport staff and an incentive for continued excellence.”

Based on 12 million customer nominations, across 110 nationalities, and including 410 airports worldwide, the survey evaluates airports across 39 services and products, from check-in, arrivals, security, shopping, through to transfers and departure at the gate. Being named winner for a second year running is testament to Budapest Airport’s ever-expanding popularity as an important tourist destination.
