How to get to Budapest:

BY AIR:

Hungary lies at the crossroads of the main tourist traffic flows in Europe. About 25 airline companies operate regular flights to and from Budapest Ferihegy International Airport, which has 3 different passenger terminals: Ferihegy 1, which tends to serve the many low-cost airlines and Ferihegy 2 for national airlines. The airport is located to the south-east from the centre in about 25 km distance. From the airport the inner city can be reached in approx. half an hour.

All participants arriving at Ferihegy International Airport are advised to take the airport shuttle minibus to the hotel; this is the least expensive and most reliable service. The Airport Shuttle Minibus (LRI) shuttle service runs every 10-20 minutes for approx. 5-6 persons. Fare: EURO 10 / one-way / person. http://www.bud.hu/english/transport/airport_shuttle

Metropolitan bus No. 200 (blue) also leaves from the terminal building for Kõbánya-Kispest station, where you may take metro line No. 3 (blue line) to the centre of the city. http://www.bkv.hu/english/busz/200vissza.html

Taxis are also available. ’Zona taxi’ offers service for fixed fares from the airport to the inner city. Fare: EURO 15-20 depending the zone you would like to get.
