Noise pollution caused by airplanes flying over Budapest in the night will soon be fully eliminated under amendments allowing restrictions in the current legislation, the mayor of the city said on Thursday.

Under an amendment air traffic will be overall banned at Budapest’s Liszt Ferenc International Airport between midnight and 5 am, István Tarlós told a press conference.

The legislation also rules for levying a fine of up to 1,000 euros on flights carried out during the time period of the ban, he said, adding that

the number of noise level monitoring spots will be increased to 13 from the current 6.

From downtown to Budapest airport in 20 minutes?

As we wrote before, at the moment, there are two plans about the railway line to Budapest Airport that could be realised. One is about a possible route from Nyugati Railway Station, the other would take passengers from Keleti Railway Station to the airport, details HERE.
