Cardiff Airport set to welcome Hungarian football fans to Wales

Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, has confirmed it will operate three direct charter flights from Hungary to Cardiff later this year.

The flights will see hundreds of excited football fans flying in to visit the capital to see Wales take on Hungary in the UEFA EURO 2020 Qualifier at Cardiff City Stadium, on 19th November 2019.

Two flights will arrive from Budapest, the Hungarian capital while the third flight will arrive from Debrecen, the second largest city in the country. All three flights will land at Cardiff Airport the morning of November 19th and depart after the match, in the early hours of November 20th.

Spencer Birns, Commercial Director at Cardiff Airport, commented: “Wizz Air is a flagship airline across Central and Eastern Europe, so we welcome the news that they have chosen to add Wales to their network for this occasion.

“Wales is a proud sporting nation, and Cardiff continues to host a wealth of major sporting events, we look forward to extending a warm, Welsh welcome to our visitors from Hungary when they arrive later this year.”
