Salzburg introducing new flight connections

Besides the wide variety of interesting European destinations that Salzburg Airport offers, starting this summer its portfolio is being expanded and it will include two flights a week to Scandinavia.

The flights are being run by Scandinavian Airlines (SAS). “We are committed to a continual expansion in the range of destinations available to our customers”, states Eivind Roald, Executive Vice President of SAS.

Current dicusstion are being held in the present also on the re-introduction of the Paris-Salzburg connection.

The connection would be great for individual travellers and even more so for people involved in trade fairs. Dr. Herbert Preclik, economic delegate from the Austrian Chambers of Commerce, said realistically “Salzburg as a venue for trade fairs only makes sense for the French market if the destination can be reached directly”.

British Airways is now increasing the frequency of flights between Salzburg Airport and London Gatwick to ten connections per week, due to the large British demand. On Saturdays from mid-February until the end of March there will be an additional flight. The UK capital city will be served from Salzburg every day. On Sundays there will be two flights to choose from – and on Saturdays three.

Budapest erscheint in neuem Glanz

In diesem Jahr wird sich in Budapest einiges verändern: Öffentliche Gebäude und Plätze werden renoviert oder neu erbaut.

So zum Beispiel der Western Square. In den Köpfen vieler Einheimischen als hässlich verschrien, soll der Platz “tidier, more liveable and greener” werden, ein attraktiver Treffpunkt für die Budapester und Touristen.

Budapest is getting more attractive

Auch an der “National University of Public Service” wird gearbeitet. Seit 2013 nimmt der historische Campus mehr und mehr eine neue Gestalt an. Grünflächen sowie neue Gebäude entstehen, darunter ein Hindernis-Parcours, ein Schwimmbad und andere Sporteinrichtungen wie Reithalle und Stallungen.

Ein weiteres Projekt – eines der größten und zugleich umstrittensten Bauvorhaben – wird in Angriff genommen: das Liget Budapest. Es handelt sich um ein neues Museumsviertel, das im Stadtpark entstehen soll. Die Fertigstellung ist für März 2018 geplant.

Mehr zu diesem Thema finden Sie auf der Website der Budapest Times.
