Emirates will commence services to Hungary from 27 October this year with a daily flight to the capital Budapest from Dubai.
Emirates SkyCargo will offer 12 tonnes of cargo capacity in each direction. Popular export commodities from Hungary are expected to be machinery, spare parts and foodstuff. The cargo division expects to transport garments, raw materials and electronics.
Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline said: “Connectivity and mobility are crucial in today’s global economy, and our service to Budapest will open up a world of opportunity for people in Hungary. It will introduce faster connections for our customers – both passengers and exporters – through our Dubai hub to numerous points that are currently underserved, including Sydney, Taipei and Phuket. These vital connections will inject new demand for travel, help boost bilateral trade with markets in the East, and magnify the competitiveness of the Hungarian economy. Ultimately, our global network benefits our customers.”
He continued: “Budapest will be the third European destination we launch services to this financial year, highlighting our continued investment in the region. We also continue to add frequencies and much needed seat capacity on many of our existing European routes.”
