The European Commission said on Monday that it has found that Hungarian plans to grant around 3.8 million euros in investment aid to modernise the infrastructure of Debrecen International Airport are in line with EU State aid rules.

The modernisation of the airport consists of security and safety updates that will enable aircrafts to land in low visibility, an upgrade to the security fence, and an interconnector bridge between terminals, the EC said in a statement.

The EC said the project will facilitate regional development and contribute to improving connections in the region, without unduly distorting competition in the single market.

The Schengen standard airport said earlier that it handled more than 284,000 passengers in 2016 and is expected to handle more than 320,000 this year.
