HUNGARY. Budapest Airport today unveiled its newly renovated flagship retail and F&B shopping centre, SkyCourt.

SkyCourt is located between the airport’s Terminals 2A and 2B.

Budapest Airport CEO Jost Lammers said: “We are happy to highlight that, with the dynamic increase of passenger traffic at the airport, our retail partners also report robust growth. The increasing demand for our exclusive branded stores makes it clear that for our passengers the real travel experience begins at the airport.
