“It is a great pleasure to welcome China Southern Airlines to Budapest Airport and to introduce Guangzhou, one of China’s major hubs, as a new and exciting destination,” says Balázs Bogáts, CCO, Budapest Airport.

The new China Southern Guangzhou route marks the fifth nonstop service from Budapest airport to China, with China Eastern Airlines and its Shanghai Airlines offshoot already flying to Budapest alongside Air China and HNA carriers from Beijing, Chongqing, Ningbo and Shanghai.

“This announcement introduces our fifth Chinese destination for passenger flights, and we are confident that our new partnership with China Southern Airlines will contribute to strengthening ties between our two regions,” Bogáts adds.

“This new route will open a myriad of onward connections to South-East Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, not only facilitating tourism and business travel, but also advancing key economic and cultural exchanges between Hungary and China,” he further notes.
