13th November 2019 • Posted in New Routes, Announcements

Our first flight to Budapest from Birmingham Airport took off last Friday (8th November).

Customers on the flight received a special welcome when they touched down in the capital of Hungary, with a cake and celebrations.

The full flight marked the start of us operating twice-weekly (Monday and Friday) to Budapest from Birmingham Airport. With 15,876 seats on sale to the Hungarian capital from Birmingham Airport this winter, it gives holidaymakers from the Midlands a great city break option.

Dubbed ‘The Queen of the Danube’, the Hungarian capital offers huge squares, grand buildings, art deco bath houses, grand cafés, Christmas Markets, castles, and ‘ruin’ pubs and is ranked as one of TripAdvisor’s Top 25 Destinations in Europe.

With a great choice of 2-5 star accommodation, friendly flight times, ATOL Protection, FREE 10kg hand luggage and FREE 22kg hold baggage included, local holidaymakers are set for an incredible time in Budapest, all for a low £60 per person deposit.

The launch of this route means we will operate to Budapest from five UK airports this Winter, including Edinburgh, East Midlands, Leeds Bradford and Manchester Airports, proving how popular the city continues to be for British holidaymakers.

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2CityBreaks, said: “This marks the start of flights and city breaks to Budapest from Birmingham Airport, and we were delighted to wave customers off on this special flight. With flights and city breaks operating from five of our nine UK bases this winter, Budapest is an incredibly popular destination, and we are looking forward to a successful winter in this fantastic city.”
