From December, Wizz Air will expand its capacity in its Budapest network with two new routes from Budapest to Hurghada, one of Egypt’s most popular resorts, as well as two beautiful cities in Jordan, Amman and Aqaba.
Pursuant to the agreement with Jordan, Hungary’s hometown airline will launch a new direct flight into and from Jordan, which will provide an excellent opportunity for Hungarian tourists to plan a cost-effective holiday to the capital of Jordan or Jordan’s only coastal city, sitting on the north-eastern tip of the Red Sea.
According to Portfolio,
Wizz Air will operate one weekly flight directly from Budapest to Hurghada on Saturdays from 18 December 18. From 17 December, the airline will operate two flights a week to Amman, on Mondays and Fridays and two flights a week to Aqaba, on Wednesdays and Sundays from 16 December.
According to the Budapest Airport route planner, there are currently no direct flights from the Hungarian capital to Aqaba, Ryanair operates direct flights to Amman, and currently, you cannot book a direct flight from Budapest to Hurghada. You have to connect to another flight in Frankfurt, Munich, Istanbul or Cairo.
With this expansion, one of the most popular destinations in the Middle East will be available from Budapest with two fascinating cities that offer different attractions and experiences, writes Travelo. Amman is the capital and the largest city of Jordan. Located in a hilly area between the desert and the Jordan Valley, the city offers a unique blend of old and new. Aqaba is the only coastal city in Jordan, offering an ideal combination of city life, beaches and ancient ruins.
