Hévíz-Balaton Airport belongs to the Hungarian state once again, as all properties on the territory were added to the property management of the Hungarian Tourism Agency.
The airport is set to be the gate to the West and will operate as a modern, European aerodrome after reconstruction works are done, writes hellomagyar.hu.
The Hungarian Tourism Agency has announced that starting from April 1,
the international Hévíz-Balaton Airport belongs to the Hungarian state.
After acquiring 90% of the shares in November, the terminal and further buildings on the territory are now state properties. Development works representing a high, European standard will start soon, in order to increase the quality of services provided on a level never seen before.
The Airport situated in Sármellék will be the gate to the West; its international competitiveness in the area will depend on its operation conducted at a high level.
Thanks to the possibility to reach Hungary directly by flight, more tourists can arrive in the country. Moreover, it can further decrease the focus on the seasonal arrival of foreigners.
The Airport has already proved its capabilities by welcoming a big number of scheduled flights, among others, from London, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, or Moscow, as well as chartered flights from Germany and Russia. In its best and most prominent year, the Hévíz-Balaton Airport attended to almost 120,000 passengers arriving in or leaving the country.
This number can further be increased with the help of the current developments and the expansion of capacity.
The first phase of the works includes the renovation of terminals operating the traffic of passengers; thus, they will be able to welcome and launch even more flights at the same time.
Special attention is paid to aviation safety and to providing European-quality services to passengers.
The launch of scheduled flights to boost the tourism of Lake Balaton will also be a priority.
