Good news for travelers in Hungary! Ryanair, the Irish low-cost airline, is adding a new flight from Budapest Airport to Tenerife-South. Additionally, there are plans for an international airline to extend its operations to Budapest.
Ryanair's new flight to Tenerife-South
Ryanair will launch a new flight connecting Budapest's Ferenc Liszt International Airport and Tenerife-South. This will be the third flight connecting the Canary Islands with Hungary, with Ryanair already operating flights to Gran Canaria and Lanzarote. The new flight will operate twice a week during the winter season, providing more options for travelers.
Competition with Wizz Air
The introduction of the new Ryanair flight to Tenerife will create competition for Wizz Air, the Hungarian low-cost airline. Currently, Wizz Air operates a flight twice a week to Tenerife. It will be interesting to see how this new competition affects both airlines and fares for travelers.
Plans for an international airline in Budapest
Royal Air Maroc (RAM), the national airline of Morocco, has ambitious plans to expand its operations and increase its fleet and destinations. RAM aims to have 200 planes by 2037 and a passenger capacity of 31.6 million. They also plan to establish a direct air connection with the capitals of the V4 countries, including Budapest, sometime between 2027 and 2037. This expansion could provide more options and opportunities for travelers in Hungary.
Untapped potential in the Moroccan market
Interestingly, despite great demand, neither Wizz Air nor Ryanair have reopened or launched flights to popular Moroccan destinations such as Agadir, Marrakesh, or Casablanca. This untapped potential in the Moroccan market could provide opportunities for future expansions and new flight routes.
