First jumbo jet at BUD Cargo City

BUD Cargo City Begins Operation

January 7, 2020

The first dedicated cargo flight, a Boeing 747 giant aircraft, arrived this Tuesday and thus, BUD Cargo City is now operational at Liszt Ferenc International Airport. The world-class logistics hub has been one of the largest airport development projects in recent years, now operating as a gateway for air freight in Central and Eastern Europe.

Budapest Airport opened the BUD Cargo City air cargo handling center at the Hungarian capital’s main airport in November last year. The new complex has now welcomed its first dedicated cargo flight – the arrival of the jumbo jet is also a symbolic moment in the history of the airport: the facility has started to operate smoothly, paving the way for Budapest Airport and the Hungarian economy to lead the region, a press release by the management company of the airport points out.

The facility consists of a 21,200-sqm warehouse and office space and a 11,650-sqm forwarding facility, with a huge 32,000-sqm traffic hall. Up to two Boeing 747-8F aircraft with a maximum take-off weight of 440 tons can be served simultaneously in the foreground. The opening of BUD Cargo City increases the cargo handling capacity of Budapest Airport from 150,000 tons to 250,000 tons per year.
