As airports adjust to the challenges of an ever-changing market, advances in technology mean that passengers expect a stress-free journey. Airports of all sizes are responding through technologies including self-boarding and self check-in facilities. An equally important aspect of the traveller experience, of course, is that baggage arrives on time, at the correct destination.

Budapest Airport handled a record 10.3 million passengers in 2015 and looks set to continue that success in 2016, with 13 new routes already announced and the arrival of a new airline partner – Air Canada rouge.
With passenger numbers expected to rise significantly in the coming years, maximising airport capacity is vital.
