Budapest Ferihegy International Airport (Hungarian: Ferihegyi Nemzetközi Repülőtér or simply Ferihegy) (IATA: BUD, ICAO: LHBP) is the international airport serving the Hungarian capital city of Budapest, and the largest of the country's five international airports. The airport offers international connections primarily within Europe, but also to Asia, the Middle East, and North America. In 2005, the airport served just over 8 million passengers.

The airport is located 16 kilometres (10 miles) east-southeast of the centre of Budapest, accessible by the major transport artery of Üllői út.

Ferihegy is large enough to accept the Boeing 747, Antonov An-124 and Antonov An-225. Most of the traffic comprises Airbus and Boeing twinjets, flying to and from European cities, and some long-haul Boeing 767s. Weather seldom diverts aircraft, when this does happen planes usually land at Bratislava or Vienna.

On December 8, 2005, a 75% stake in Ferihegy Airport was bought by BAA plc for 464.5 billion HUF (approx. 2.1 billion USD), including the right of operation for 75 years.


Ferihegy airport has main terminals 1, 2A and 2B, and a smaller one for general aviation flights. A new air cargo base is to be built. Transfer between terminals 2A and 2B is convenient enough to be completed on foot. The older Terminal 1, however, is further away and must be reached by bus.

Terminal 1

The newly opened Terminal 1 serves all low-cost airlines. The terminal was renovated in September 2005. The freight functions will be re-located to a newly built cargo base, whose construction has been delayed by a political scandal about public spending that led to contract cancellations.

Terminal 2A

Terminal 2A was built for MALÉV Hungarian Airlines, but it now also serves its code-share airline partners as well. This terminal replaced the original terminal in 1985.

Terminal 2B

Although connected to Terminal 2A, it is referred to as a separate terminal, opened in 1997. It serves all of the other international flights and airlines not served by Terminal 2A.
