Herts, UK. Budapest Airport Transfer to Budapest
There are three terminals at Budapest’s Ferihegy airport (Terminal 1, Terminal 2A and 2B). The national carrier MALEV use terminal 2A, known as the main terminal. Most other flights such as British Airways, Lufhansa, Air France and more use terminal 2B. The Low cost airlines such as Easy Jet, Air Berlin and Wizz Air use Terminal 1. Our Budapest airport transfer form automatically knows where your flight will land and take off from.
For passengers needing to get between terminal 1 and terminals 2a and 2b, there is an internal bus facility costing approximately 500 hungarian forints. All airport terminals have full tourist services such as foreign currency exchange, ATM's, shops and cafe/restaurants.
There is an airport minibus company offering an airport transfer to Budapest. For a fee of approximately 2500 HUF each they will take you to your hotel or other address in Budapest. You can buy tickets at the airport arrivals hall or book directly with your concierge or reception at your hotel.
Airport taxi's can be a minefield. It is often suggested that airport cabs or airport transfer services are booked well in advance. As with any airport in the world, it is frequent to find unscrupulous taxi operators, licensed or unlicensed trying to make the most of the visiting tourist, who still doesn't know the value of the hungarian currency. By booking your airport transfer in advance you are guaranteed to enjoy a comfortable, speedy and professional airport transfer direct to your hotel. Your english / german speaking driver will pick you up directly from the arrivals hall and whisk you to the comfort of your hotel. He will also, if required, help you with your bags and hotel check in. As part of our service to you, you will be offered an aperitif during your transfer.
Budapest Airport Terminal 1 renovation receives construction industry award for excellence
The reconstruction of Terminal 1 at Ferihegy Airport has been given the construction industry award
Budapest, 7 May 2007 - The reconstruction of Terminal 1 at Ferihegy Airport has been given the construction
industry award for excellence. The plaque commemorating the Hungarian construction industry's most prestigious
award was unveiled at a ceremony this afternoon, on the terminal's 57th birthday, near the main entrance.
The renovation project's investor, prime building contractor and planners received the accolade jointly.
"The building merited the award on account of the high standard of work during the organisation, management
and implementation of the reconstruction,. said László Somogyi, the chairman of the construction industry
award for excellence judging panel. "The terminal's interior and facades were renovated in full compliance
with the requirements of the monuments authority. The wooden ceiling and wall coverings installed resemble
the original materials used and the old metal fittings were also renovated."
"The result of the renovation and reconstruction is an airport terminal that is modern, beautiful and on a
human scale. Not only the Hungarian construction industry, but the entire country can be proud of it."
"The project is a good example of cooperation between the Hungarian construction industry and architecture,"
said Tibor Tolnay, the CEO of Magyar Építő Rt. (Hungarian Building Corp). "What contributed to the success of
the project was that we managed to assemble an exceptional, creative and high-performing community of project
staff, planners and builders. The project is proof that there is great potential in the Hungarian
"We are very proud that the renovation of Terminal 1 has received the most prestigious Hungarian construction
industry award," said Antal Németh, Budapest Airport's construction director. "The project was warranted by
the appearance of low-cost airlines and the dynamic growth in their traffic. It was not without its risks,
since we had to install an airport that meets 21st century technical and security requirements in a protected
monument building. We are proud of this terminal, which is almost unique in Europe and we hope that our
passengers are happy to use it as well."
The nearly 22 000 square metre terminal was renovated by almost 3000 people in the space of just 270 days.
It has been used by about 4 million passengers since it reopened.
In addition to the Hungarian construction industry's award for excellence, the project has also been
bestowed with the Europa Nostra award, Europe's most prestigious accolade for the preservation of architectural
heritage, in 2006.
The terminal building was opened to passengers 57 years ago to the day on 7 May 1950.
Budapest Airport made the decision to refurbish the terminal in 2004. The full reconstruction and the re-opening
of the terminal was warranted by the growth in the airport's passenger traffic, strict security requirements and
EU accession. The building's mechanical and electrical systems and public utility networks were completely
renovated as part of the project.
The project was carried out in full compliance with the requirements of monument protection, since, together
with the Ferenc Puskás Stadium and the Erzsébet square coach terminal, the building is one of the finest
examples of architectural modernism in Hungary as well as in Europe.
The renovation started in the autumn of 2004 and Terminal 1 was reopened after about 8 months of work on
1 September 2005. It is currently home to five low-cost airlines and about a third of Ferihegy's traffic.
