Budapest Airport signs an agreement with Shanghai Airlines

Thursday, June 22, 2023


Shanghai Airlines inaugurate a twice–weekly service between Budapest and Nirgbo, the southern coastal city in China. Applying the airline’s 246–seat B787 – 900s on the 8,466–kilometer sector, the carrier’s latest link joins its established operation in Shanghai.

Balazs Bogats, CCO, Budapest Airport states that Hungary is once again a fast-expanding tourism market for China, with records showing an expected increase of Chinese visitors travelling to Budapest this year as they see further simplify travel restrictions.

They have been working hard to fix this service and Budapest Airport would especially like to thank the Consulate General of Hungary in Shangai for its great assistance in the process of securing their latest link to China.

Bogats added Budapest is home to one of the biggest Chinese communities in Central Europe and we are proud to launch another vital link from East Asia to Budapest. We have no doubt the new route will be a huge success.

In another highly significant move, Shanghai Airlines will also be raising the frequency on the crucial Budapest Shanghai route, from three to five – weekly at the end of this month.

The Hungarian gateway now has four non–stop connections to China – Beijing, Chongqing, Ningbo, and Shanghai – and the new route, alongside raised frequencies, will mean Budapest will offer 10 weekly services to the East Asian country this summer.
