No night flights from August

Beginning in August, no flights will be permitted for take-off or landing at Budapest Liszt Ferenc Airport between midnight and 5 a.m., announced Budapest mayor István Tarlós and Innovation and Technology Minister László Palkovics at a press briefing on Tuesday.

The press briefing was held following a meeting of the Air Traffic and Airplane Industry Council.

Tarlós declared that, according to the minister’s plan, the night flight ban is certain to be in effect beginning in August, but that situations could arise in which airplanes must be given a chance to land.

Palkovics said a “noise protection fee” will be introduced, and a window insulation programme will again be announced for the affected population living near the airport.
