Budapest Airport’s Fast Track service enhances the passenger experience by bypassing airport security queues.

Budapest Airport’s convenient Fast Track service is gaining in popularity. An express security channel is designed to enhance the passenger experience by bypassing airport security queues. A number of new airlines have subscribed to Fast Track, including Wizz Air – its first low-cost carrier subscriber, as well as Finnair, Air France and KLM. Existing airlines utilising the service include Aegean, Air Baltic, Alitalia, Qatar Airways and Turkish Airlines.

Fast Track is available at no extra charge to all first class/premium passengers from their participating airlines when booking a flight. In addition, economy class passengers or any low-cost airline passengers can pre-purchase the product directly from their airline during booking, via travel agencies or by visiting one of the three recently introduced sales points in Terminal 2A and 2B.

Kam Jandu, Director of Aviation, Budapest Airport, commented: “We are very pleased to see that more and more airlines are choosing to subscribe to the Fast Track service for the benefit of their passengers. The Wizzair subscription is particularly good news as it represents the first of the low-cost airlines to participate in delivering a better product for their eligible passengers. In addition we are very pleased that Air France/KLM are leading the way for large European full service airlines in recognising the benefits for their high value passengers by providing Fast Track to them on a complimentary basis.”
