One of Ryanair’s flights from Amman to Budapest was meant to land at 10:55 on Saturday night, but because of the storm, it was directed to Bratislava(Pozsony). They promised the passengers would be transported to Budapest by buses.
A reader of Index, who wanted only to be referred to as Z, told of a rather unpleasant experience to the news outlet. Z’s flight from Jordan’s capital to Budapest was supposed to land at 10:55 PM on Saturday, however, because of the stormy weather, the aeroplane was directed to Bratislava, where they told passengers that they would be taken to Budapest with buses.
This, however, never happened.
According to Z, the Bratislava airport had no idea that Ryanair had requested bus transportation after landing; furthermore, they could not even reach the airline’s competent. The airport tried to help the poor passengers stuck there on their own, but could not find any buses.
The reader wrote: “In the end, everyone is trying to get to Budapest individually. Many with children.”

Some of the passengers took the 5:53 AM train to Budapest. The luckier one could rent cars, or those who could afford took a cab back to Hungary. “It could be, that there are still 2-3 people waiting for a miracle at the airport,” wrote Z.
The train left for Budapest with a 30-minute delay. At 9 AM, on Sunday, the passengers have been on the road for about 12-14 hours, according to Z They were all exhausted and hungry.
Another reader, R, added that the plane flew to Budapest, about an hour after landing in Bratislava, but without the passengers, according to Flightradar.
