Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks are today celebrating ten years since they started operating award-winning flights and city breaks to Budapest from Leeds Bradford Airport.  

The leading leisure airline and UK’s largest operator of city breaks to Europe first waved customers off on their inaugural flight from Leeds Bradford Airport to Budapest on 29th March 2012. Since then, Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks have carried thousands of customers to the Hungarian capital from the base.  

Jet2.com operates twice-weekly services (Monday and Friday) to Budapest from Leeds Bradford Airport, offering customers the chance to book and enjoy a getaway to the UNESCO-stamped city.  

Customers can choose from a flight-only option with Jet2.com or an ATOL protected package holiday with Jet2CityBreaks available for a low £60 per person booking deposit. 

Package options with Jet2CityBreaks include flights with Jet2.com, 22kg hold luggage, transfers to and from the airport, as well as a choice of 2-5 star hotels in central locations, providing the perfect base from which to explore and experience one of the best city break destinations in Europe. 

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “We are delighted to be celebrating ten years of operating flights and city breaks to Budapest from Leeds Bradford Airport today. Our flights and city break packages to Budapest from Leeds Bradford Airport have proved extremely popular over the last decade, with lots of customers enjoying a getaway to this city break favourite. We look forward to taking many more happy holidaymakers on our award-winning flights and city breaks to Budapest from the base.” 

Balázs Bogáts, Head of Airline Development at Budapest Airport, said: “Since the first Jet2.com flight took off from Budapest several new routes have been launched and during this time plenty of passengers have travelled on the flights of the leading leisure airline between Budapest and the UK. We are grateful that Jet2.com has connected Budapest with Leeds Bradford in the past decade and are thrilled about the restart of the flight, which we have no doubt will be a huge success again.” 

Nicola McMullen, Aviation Director at Leeds Bradford Airport, added: “Reaching a decade of Jet2.com flights between Budapest and Leeds Bradford Airport is a brilliant achievement. Throughout this time, the route has proved very popular with passengers from across our region and beyond, so we’re delighted to see the restart of flights to one of Europe’s most interesting capitals following the easing of Covid restrictions.
