Budapest Airport, Budapest, Hungary

Budapest Airport goes by a number of different names. Officially, it's Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport, but some people still refer to it by its former name Budapest Ferihegy International Airport, or simply Ferihegy.


Hungary has four airports of note, and Budapest is by far the largest. Located 15km outside the capital, the airport has flights that span the globe, with options to go as far as Montreal and Toronto in the west and Tokyo and Seoul in the east. The majority of flights stay within Europe however, with London Luton, Paris CDG and Frankfurt am Main being the most popular routes.


Ferihegy has three terminals: 1, 2A and 2B. However, only two of these are currently operational – Terminal 1 has been closed since 2012, but may be re-opened given the demand. Terminals 2A and 2B are beside each other and can be walked between, while Terminal 1 requires a bus transfer.


All flights to and from the Schengen zone are found in 2A, while flights to non-Schengen countries are found in 2B.


Between the two terminals is the Sky Court, a five-storey building full of high-end stores, eating options and airport lounges. This area can only be entered after passing through security checks.

Trains hide 

Trains used to run between the airport and the city, but with the closing of Terminal 1, the train station is no longer within easy walking distance for travellers.


To make use of this train connection, you must first get a bus from the airport to Ferihegy train station. Take the 200E bus to the station, which costs HUF350 and takes around 10 minutes. Local travel cards can also be used.


This combined trip should take around 40 minutes, if connections work in your favour. 


A slightly longer trip, although only by five minutes or so, is to combine the 200E bus with a Metro journey. Take the bus to Kőbánya-Kispest and change to the Metro for Deák Ferenc tér station in central Budapest. 

Buses hide 

It's possible to take the 200E all the way into town, however this takes a touch over an hour, so it's not as quick as switching for a train or Metro. This bus service also arrives at Deák Ferenc tér station.  

Taxi hide 

Taxis have the obvious advantage of flexibility in terms of your departure time and destination. From the airport to the city centre, a fare can cost up to HUF9000.
