Building work has been completed on the structure of the largest building at Budapest Airport, which will be its new dedicated freight terminal BUD Cargo City, which covers 21,600 sq m and which will be used for the handling of air cargo.
The construction of the larger warehouse building at Budapest Airport’s new logistics base took nine months.
The BUD Cargo City will also house a 32,000 sq m concrete apron and will provide additional new parking positions for the simultaneous handling of two Boeing 747-8F type aircraft.
Construction of BUD Cargo City is financed by Budapest Airport for €50 million, and set for completion at the end of this year.
René Droese, Budapest Airport’s chief property and cargo officer said: “The current international trade conflicts undoubtedly pose challenges for the representatives of the industry, but we are confident, as the volume of air cargo handled by Budapest Airport is characterised by stability in 2019.”
