Budapest Airport signs MoU with Xi’an Xianyang International Airport during Belt And Road Forum


The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed during the recent Belt and Road Forum in Beijing, China, to further develop links between China and Hungary

Budapest, Hungary, Monday 29th April 2019 – Budapest Airport has stepped up its efforts to become a major distribution and logistics base for China in the Central and Eastern European (CEE) region by signing a cooperation agreement with Xi’an Xianyang International Airport.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed during the recent Belt and Road Forum in Beijing, China, and will highlight Budapest Airport in China as a prime gateway to Central and Southeastern Europe.

“Strong economic cooperation is only possible between two countries if they are well-connected, which is why aviation connections through direct flights between Hungary and China are of key importance,” said Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade for Hungary.

“For this reason, we are delighted that a cooperation agreement between the airport of Xi’an and Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport has been signed, as this agreement may link additional Chinese cities to the network where direct flights are available from Hungary.”

Budapest Airport will also sign an MoU with Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport in May during a planned Chinese delegation visit to Budapest, to further strengthen aviation links between Hungary and China.

“The foundation stone was laid with the direct connection to Zhengzhou, and now it is time to further intensify our cooperation with our new Chinese partners,” said Jost Lammers, Chief Executive Officer, Budapest Airport.

“Zhengzhou, Xi’an, and Budapest share a great dynamic of growth, and we are very confident that we can mutually benefit from this cooperation.”

The Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade has been pursuing increased cooperation with China in the field of trade and the development of joint projects.

The support of Hungarian diplomats and trade promotion experts has helped Budapest Airport to double the weekly capacity of direct cargo flights between Budapest, Hong Kong, and Zhengzhou, and also to enhance the belly cargo links on board scheduled Air China passenger flights between Beijing and Budapest.

Since the beginning of April, Cargolux has been operating two additional direct cargo flights per week between Zhengzhou, one of the fastest growing airports in the world, and Budapest.
