The first direct flight connecting Budapest and Astana has left for the Expo


Wizz Air announced its new route in April, offering a direct connection between Budapest, Hungary, and Astana, Kazakhstan. The direct flight will save hours for travelers, and could further strengthen the economic, touristic and cultural relationship between the countries.

The Expo 2017 Astana will open its gates to visitors 2 days after the launch of the new flight route. Hungary is also among the exhibitors at the Expo, which aims at demonstrating solutions on the topic of “Future Energy” – said Mihály Varga, Minister for National Economy, at the press conference preceding the departure of the first Budapest-Astana Wizz Air flight.
