Lufthansa unhappy with Ferihegy

German airline Lufthansa is not getting value for its money at Budapest international airport Ferihegy, and no progress has been made in talks with Ferihegy operator Budapest Airport Rt, according to Lufthansa CEE regional director Stephan Semsch.

Semsch said the Hungarian market was very important to Lufthansa, noting that the Hungarian market was the world's third-fastest developing one. Semsch said passenger traffic has risen 60% at Ferihegy in the last two years.

Lufthansa controls 20-22% of the Hungarian market with over 571,000 passengers ‘04. Lufthansa pays an annual Euro 8 million to Budapest Airport. Lufthansa's station chief Tamás Lichtenberger said fees were an average 20% more here than in Vienna.
