Budapest Ferihegy International Airport, Budapest, Hungary

January 31st, 2006 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places

Budapest Ferihegy International Airport (Hungarian: Ferihegyi Repülőtér or simply Ferihegy) (located at 47°26′12.96″N, 19°15′20.13″E) is the only airport serving the capital city of Budapest, and the largest among the country's four international airports. The airport offers a wide range of international connections primarily within Europe, but also to Asia, the Middle East, and North America. The airport is located 10 miles (16km) south east of Budapest, accessible by the major transport artery of Üllői út. At the end of 2005 expressway M0 that connects all major roads and expressways around the city will reach the airport providing faster link to other towns.

Ferihegy is large enough to accept the Boeing 747 and Antonov An-124. Airbus A380 capability is not yet known. Most of the traffic comprises Airbus-, Boeing 737-, and Douglas DC-9-derived twinjets, flying to and from European cities, and several overseas Boeing 767s. A few ex-Soviet bloc airlines still fly Tupolev and Ilyushin jetliners to Ferihegy.

Planes landing from the north (this depends on the wind conditions) will fly low over the Kőbánya district, the location of the largest cemetery in Europe. Weather seldom diverts aircraft. When this does happen, planes usually land at Bratislava or Vienna.
