BUD Airport Cargo City

Cargo City Opened at Budapest Airport

November 25, 2019

Just twelve months after commencement of works on site, BUD Cargo City has been handed over at Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport.

The EUR 50 million facility is not only a world-class logistics base but also a catalyst, enabling Hungary and Budapest Airport to become the cargo gateway of Central and Eastern Europe, according to a press release by Budapest Airport.

The new air cargo handling facility offers a professional environment and enhanced competitiveness for air cargo operators and may bring a regional leading role in the industry for Budapest Airport and the Hungarian economy. The logistics complex comprises a 21,200-square-meter warehouse and office facility as well as an 11,650-square-meter forwarder building, to be occupied by tenants from January 2020, facilitating cargo handling of unprecedented efficiency by ensuring cooperation of all market actors via their simultaneous presence on the same site. The logistics base also features an adjacent concrete apron of 32,000 square meters to accommodate loading and unloading procedures for two Boeing 747-8F aircraft with 440 tons of maximum take-off weight each, at the same time.  The facility is already home to 35 tenants in total, including forwarders, cargo airlines, security service providers, and the customs authority, indirectly supporting 10 000 jobs in the Hungarian economy.

Budapest Airport handled 146,113 tons of air cargo last year, and the volume of cargo distributed via the Hungarian capital has – in spite of international trade conflicts and the decline in foreign markets – continued to be stable this year, as well. The new facility reinforces this stability and provides a sound basis for additional growth: once it is commissioned, the total cargo handling capacity of the airport will be increased to 250,000 tons per annum.
