BUD (iata)Budapest airport

From this railway station there seems to be a rail link to the only airport of Budapest in 2009. The Western Railway Station (nuygati) seems to be the only railway station with this kind of service and with around 2 to 3 trains an hour, it's very easy.

The trip between Budapest Western Railway Station and the airport takes about 25 minutes.
At the airport the railway station is loacated near terminal 1. So, if you are not flying to or from terminal 1 (for the low cost arlines), it seems that you need to take bus 200E from terminal 1. There is a prdestrian walk between the railway station at the airport and terminal 1.

The airport is located 10 miles east-southeast of the city center.

As explained above, if you arrive at this railway station, from the airport, you will find yourself in the heart of the city.

In 2009 it seems that all international trains for Budapest are arriving and departing from it's largest railway station, which is the Keleti railway station. - Up
