Arriving in Budapest into Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport, in the southeast region, is quick and easy. The large hub serves budget airlines Wizz Air, easyJet, and Ryanair which all fly direct from the four London airports, totalling 32 flights per day. Spain, France, and Italy also operate non-stop flights from their main cities.  

At departure, the Universal Airport Hub in the centre of the city provides a stress-free experience of storing luggage and allows you to print boarding passes and luggage tags, tick off the check-in part of the journey, and purchase any last-minute souvenirs when it’s time to depart. Renovated metro stations make transfers to and from the airport more comfortable. A direct airport to city centre express bus service is also available.  

The transport system offers many options to experience Budapest while saving the tread on your trainers. An eco-friendly mode of travelling around is by renting a MOL BUBI bike, which even has a holder for mobile phones when you need to digitally capture the essence of the city.  

The main attractions in the City Park are discoverable by hop on-hop off electric buses that can enter areas which are off limit for cars. The eco-friendly vehicles take visitors around the Heroes’ Square, House of Music Hungary, Vajdahunyad Castle, and Széchenyi Baths.   

The Budapest Card allows free public transport, free Pest and Buda guided walking tours, and free admission to both the Lukács Thermal Bath and the Pálinka Experience Museum, along with 30+ tourist attractions and services and discounts of up to 50 percent.
