COVID-19 Procedures

Budapest Airport has consistent checks of customer temperatures and an efficient COVID-19 testing centre. The size, design and positioning of COVID-19 information signage is an item that could be improved. The availability of hand sanitiser is adequate but is an area that could be increased, and better refilling of sanitiser machines is needed. Social distancing is not being pro-actively managed, and this is an area for change at the busier times for check-in and security clearance. Social distancing markings are provided around the terminal, but again this is an item where some airports have achieved a better and more visible COVID-19 branding to attract maximum interest. The standards of terminal cleanliness are quite good, but ATP testing showed that cleaning techniques in toilets and some seating areas could be improved or more frequent. With some minor improvements, Budapest Airport would meet the 4-Star COVID-19 Safety Rating.
