BUD Cargo City, Budapest airport’s new €50m dedicated air freight facility has been completed, with all warehouse and office space leased out to tenants.

Celebi Aviation Holding and Menzies Aviation are two of the international ground and cargo handling companies moving into the 21,600 square metre cargo handling facility, which is part of BUD’s overall development programme.

The terminal includes an 11,200 square metre forwarder building and 21,600 square metres of warehousing space, with a 32,000 square metre cargo apron, which will be able to service two Boeing 747 freighters simultaneously.

“BUD Cargo City is a significant milestone in BUD’s growth strategy, and establishes the airport as the Central and Eastern Europe’s air cargo hub and gateway to the world,” declares Rene Droese, Chief Property and Cargo Officer, Budapest airport.

“BUD Cargo City provides a state-of-the-art, efficient, linear and rapid logistics environment for our air cargo community and opens up a world of potential for our partners, with high quality increased capacity to build new connections to all continents, especially Asia and North America.”

With Phase 1 of the air freight terminal, completed, BUD Cargo City's capacity is boosted to an annual 250,000 tonnes.

The forwarder building will be handed over in Phase 2, in January 2020, for freight forwarders such as Kuehne + Nagel, cargo-partner, DB Schenker, EKOL, Kombi Express, Ghibli/ CECZ and Yusen Logistics.
