Arriving by plane
Airlines flying to Budapest are collected on this page.
International flights land on Liszt Ferenc International Airport, Budapest. Transfer from the airport to the Congress venue is possible
- – by the Airport Shuttle Minibus (LRI) service,
- – by taxi ,
- – or by public transport.
The Airport Shuttle Minibus is an inexpensive
and still convenient option of the three. Passengers
calling at the Minibus desk are distributed to buses
based on their destination. When a Minibus is filled
it takes its passengers to their destination, one
after the other. Depending on how busy the airport is,
there is a couple of minutes to wait (typically between 1-20 min)
till a bus starts.
If you choose to take a taxi, count with cca. 25 Eur for the ride from the airport to the Congress venue.
Public transport from the airport to the city is less comfortable and definitely not designed for those travelling with big luggage. To reach the Congress venue from the airport, take first bus No. 200E to Kőbánya-Kispest metro station. Change for metro line M3, get off at Ferenciek tere, change for bus No. 8 or 112 and get off at BAH-csomópont.
