In July 2015 the air traffic controllers of HungaroControl handled 100,856 aircraft, breaking all previously measured records. New traffic records emerged in en-route traffic, while the number of flights arriving and departing from Budapest also reached the highest figures since November 2011.
HungaroControl’s new, free-of-charge, web-based service offers general aviation pilots faster and simpler preparation for safe flights. The Homebriefing system helps pilots submit flight plans from wherever they may be for flights in the airspace below 2900 metres (9500 feet) to HungaroControl’s Flight Information Centre.
The European Commission approved a total of 276 projects following the first calls for proposals under the Connecting Europe Facility, published in 2014.
