Considering the current economic situation, Budapest Airport decided to give its employees an extraordinary 10 percent wage increase, which will take effect from October 2022.
Budapest Airport employees will receive a 10 percent wage increase
After the average 13 percent wage increase in March, the airport operator made a proposal for further wage improvement. The union representatives unanimously accepted the proposal, reports liner.hu. Therefore, employees of the BUD group will receive the increased wages already in November. At BUD Security Kft., the starting basic salary of passenger security inspectors is HUF 444,800 (EUR 1049,06) gross as of October. In addition, the starting salary of terminal operation and information staff responsible for passenger information will also increase to HUF 444,800 gross per month, writes portfolio.hu.
Zsuzsa Zahorán-Pirisi, HR director of Budapest Airport, explained regarding the wage development:
“During the year 2022, Budapest Airport has already implemented a significant wage improvement, but we can all see that inflation and rising utility prices have put Hungarian employees in a difficult situation. I am glad that Budapest Airport is moving forward in cooperation with its employees and supporting each other even in this extraordinary situation. We continue to count on our colleagues; in fact, we are constantly expanding our team, as our common goal is to provide the best possible service to our passengers at the airport.”
The goal is to support employees even in the most difficult situations
During the Covid-19 pandemic, Budapest Airport viewed it as a priority to maintain the health and financial security of the employees of the BUD group. At the beginning of April 2020, the company decided to set up a foundation to support colleagues who are dealing with difficulties. The management launched this initiative by offering an average of one month’s salary. Furthermore, the shareholders of Budapest Airport decided to support the activities of the BUD Group Employee Foundation by doubling the amount already collected.
Since then, the aim of the foundation has been to support current or former employees whose physical or mental health and social security have been endangered due to the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. In the past year, the foundation has supported many employees with a regular monthly sum of money.
