Zoeftig complements a-pier-ances at Budapest International Airport

This month, Budapest Airport officially opened its brand new Pier B project, part of the gateway’s BUD 2020 development programme to enhance airport infrastructure and improve the passenger experience.

The pier, constructed by KÉSZ Építő Zrt, spans 225m in length and adds over 10,000m2 of space to the adjoining Terminal 2B. The facility will be used to handle non-Schengen flights, including intercontinental long haul routes to North America, China and the Persian Gulf.

Pier B was designed as a modern and functional building that would serve the comfort of the rapidly increasing number of passengers travelling through the airport. It’s for this reason that Zoeftig was commissioned to provide a durable and stylish seating solution to compliment the design of the building.

Over 1,200 of Zoeftig’s inFINITE seating solutions in a teal colour with matching fitting were installed throughout the new pier. To ensure the seating solutions were durable to meet the high volume of passengers, a PU finish was selected allowing for easy maintenance.

Paul Williams, CEO of Zoeftig, commented: “Budapest Airport is one of the fastest growing airports in Europe and has seen a significant increase in passenger levels in recent years. When we were approached to provide a seating solution for the new Pier B terminal, our inFINITE seating solutions were the perfect fit. As well as being highly durable to accommodate high footfall, the sleek and contemporary design was in keeping with the design of the new facilities.”
