I fly - how to get from and to the airport?

Our airport name is Liszt Ferenc International Airport, Terminal 1 is closed, Terminal 2 A and 2 B is in operation.

Transport from and to the airport

By Taxi

Főtaxi, the taxi company with the longest traditions (founded 1913) in Hungary transports passengers between the terminals and Budapest. Főtaxi’s several hundred cars, trained and experienced colleagues ensure a safe basis to satisfy passengers’ needs at a high standard.
Taxi drivers speaking at least one foreign language are in service with large, category ‘A’ cars younger than five years. All cars are equipped with a POS terminal, therefore credit cards are also accepted.
Reservations can be made in person at the Főtaxi booths located at the exits at Terminals 2A and 2B. At the taxi rank in front of the stands, taxis are parking continuously waiting for passengers.

From 1 September 2013 a new Taxi Decree was introduced in Hungary regulating the price* of the taxis at a fixed tariff of 280 HUF/Km (0.95 EUR/Km) in addition to the one-off basic fee of 450 HUF (1.50 EUR) and waiting fee. A ride to the city center should typically cost around 6500 HUF (22 EUR) depending on traffic conditions.

Please be aware of exposing yourself at risk by using non-regulated taxi service providers soliciting at the terminal buildings.

 

By AirportShuttle

AirportShuttle-Minibus a really convenient and reasonable airport door-to-door transfer between the Airport and any point of Budapest and its fleet operates 24 hours a day.

The transfer operates as a shared-ride service, which means that passengers travelling to /from the same/ closely situated address are escorted in the same vehicle. The travelling time is optimized and supervised by a GPS-based fleet-monitoring system, which is capable of displaying the actual position of all vehicles in real-time. Every vehicle is equipped with dual-air conditioning systems and free Wi-Fi hotspots for gratis internet access, further increasing the passenger comfort during the journey.

The service provides the transfer with a boarding capacity of 8 to 10. The AirportShuttle-Minibus Desks are to be found at every terminal (Terminal 1, Terminal 2A and 2B) and welcome the arriving guests to Hungary at the „Gates of the Country”. All Minibuses arrive to and depart from the Terminals’ Main Entrance. Reservations can be made in person at the AirportShuttle-Minibus Desks or at our reception desk.

I want to use the public transport - what should I know?
