By default, there are hardly any flights from Budapest to the Canary Islands: only 5 per week to the 4 islands in total. And, from March, one of the routes will be discontinued. Read on to find out which island you cannot travel to anymore from Budapest from March 2023.
No more flights to Fuerteventura from March
Fuerteventura, the second biggest Canary Island has been removed from Wizz Air’s schedule. They have been selling tickets for the summer season for a long time.
