Polish flag carrier to launch new flights from Budapest

LOT Polish Airlines will launch two new connections from Budapest in September, to Brussels and Bucharest, the airline and Ferenc Liszt Airport in Budapest announced in a joint communique on Thursday.

"From September 2 this year, flights to Brussels and Bucharest will be conducted twice a day, 12 times a week with new Embraer 195s," LOT stated, adding its Budapest base would have one permanent aeroplane of that type to service the connections.

Flights to Brussels and back will be carried out in the morning and evening (from Budapest at 0710 and 1725 and to Budapest at 1000 and 2025), which will enable business travel without the need to stay over.

LOT will also fly twice daily to Bucharest except at weekends - at 1300 and 2250, with returns at 1605 and 0600.

"Romania is one of Hungary's important economic partners and is becoming ever more eagerly chosen tourist destination," the communique observed.
