A record year for cargo at Budapest

Budapest Airport (BUD) processed a record amount of freight in 2018, with volumes increasing by 14.9% year on year to 146,113 tonnes.
It is the third year in a row the airport has recorded double-digit growth as it has welcomed new freighter services from AirBridgeCargo and Silk Way West Airlines this year.
In line with the growth, the airport is developing its cargo facilities
Last year, Budapest Airport launched the €32.6m Cargo City, which includes a 20,000 sq m cargo handling facility and dedicated freighter stands, as part of the BUD:2020 programme. Construction began in September.
In addition, the airport is constructing a new cargo apron of 32,000 m2, in the proximity of Runway 2, where two Boeing B-747-8F freighters can be serviced simultaneously.
