Budapest Airport is to launch a new growth strategy for Asia in 2019 which includes additional direct freighter and belly cargo routes to China, as well as enhanced e-commerce capabilities.
The plans align with the airport’s ongoing BUD20:20 expansion programme, which includes the EUR32.6 Cargo City development scheduled to open next year.
Additional China routes from Budapest Airport are expected to take off next summer. The Airport is currently in discussion with e-commerce companies like Alibaba Group, SF, ZTO, and STO Express.
“China plays a major part in our BUD:2020 growth programme, and we are working together with some of the country’s largest logistics and transport companies to meet rising demand for imports from China,” said Budapest Airport executive director René Droese.
