Budapest Airport saw traffic for 2012 dip by 4.7% following the loss of the country’s flag carrier Malev in February.

The airport handled 8.5 million passengers, of which a record 8.3 million were originating and departing (O&D) passengers.

The average load factor was 74.1%, 2.5% up on 2011., while traffic carried by low-cost airlines increased 91.8% – accounting for 4.38 million passengers. 

Budapest handled 61,938 tonnes of freight.

By year end, Budapest Airport’s network includes 110 airports (17% up on 2011) in 93 cities (up 17%) in 41 countries. 

With many carriers keen to pick up routes abandoned by Malev, today only 13 destinations previously served have not resumed, the airport said.

“We will continue to drive home service improvements during 2013 to ensure that both our airline partners and our passengers continue to receive high quality and best value services,” said Budapest Airport CEO Jost Lammers.
