Private carrier RegioJet is launching a direct bus connection between Bratislava and Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport in Hungary in response to passenger interest in using flights provided by low-cost air carriers from Budapest, the TASR newswire wrote on February 12.

The private company buses will run on a daily basis, leaving Bratislava at 3:15 and arriving at Budapest Airport at 6:45, before morning flights. Conversely, the bus from Budapest Airport will leave at 10:15 and will pull into Bratislava at 14:15.

“We’re responding to repeated calls from passengers who want to save money and use a dense network of low-cost flights to and from Budapest,” business director of RegioJet buses Marcela Hamříková told TASR. “We expect passengers to be interested in the new route.”

She added that if the new route is successful, more buses to Budapest Airport could be added in the future.

In addition, RegioJet operates a direct bus link between Bratislava and Budapest five times a day. The buses stop at Budapest’s Kelenföld railway station, where it is possible to change for the underground. Beginning this year, the carrier launched a new Bratislava-Vienna-Budapest bus route, and it plans to launch new routes in Germany by the end of the year.
