Budapest Airport to build new DHL Express base

August 24, 2016

Budapest Airport and DHL Express have signed a strategic agreement about the development of a new facility for the Deutsche Post DHL Group company in Hungary. This is the second large-scale investment by Budapest Airport and DP DHL, after the latter’s freight forwarding business units moved into a new facility built in the Airport Business Park in 2013.

Budapest Airport says it will develop a large warehouse and office complex for the airport operations of DHL Express. The full area of the new DHL Express base near Terminal 1 of Budapest Airport will reach 13,000 sq meters. The preparation of the site has already begun, and will be handed over to the Hungarian construction company Market Építõ Zrt. in September. The new premises of DHL Express will accommodate approximately 300 employees at the airport. Today, DHL Express performs its daily operations with two aircraft: an Airbus A300-600F aircraft connecting Budapest with the main European hub in Leipzig and a Boeing 737 handling inbound volumes from Brussels.

DHL Express has been present in Hungary for more than 25 years. The new lease agreement between Budapest Airport and DHL Express for another 20 years clearly reflects the commitment of the DHL Deutsche Post Group to Hungary and the airport. “This is another successful example of Hungarian-German cooperation, creating growth and new job opportunities in Hungary. Aviation connectivity both in the cargo and the passenger area is a key factor for the growth of a modern economy, and we are committed to contribute to this,” Budapest Airport CEO Jost Lammers said at the signing of the agreement.
