Directions for Your Transfer from Budapest Airport

Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport (BUD), also known as Ferihegy, is the largest of the five airports of Hungary. Under normal traffic conditions, taking a Budapest airport taxi to the downtown area of Budapest takes approximately 35 minutes. Your trip will begin by taking the Route 4 highway and after a couple of exits, you will reach the Budai alsó rap road which leads right into the heart of the city. From here, your driver will take the local roads to get you safely to your chosen hotel.
