Electrical sockets are also available throughout the airport in case you need to charge your devices. If you encounter any hiccups when trying to connect, just try again. You may try a few times before you are able to connect.

Celebi platinum lounges offer well-equipped business facilities if it becomes necessary for you to have a very important meeting at the airport. The cost for this service is 40 euros per person.

The SkyCourt lounge also offers similar services.

If you are tired after your journey and you need a massage, we recommend Thai massage at Lian day spa. It is located on the SkyCourt's intermediate floor.

The chapel and the room of silence offers you a place to say a prayer, meditate or spend some peaceful moments.

You can make use of this chapel regardless of your religious inclination.

Though we strongly advise that you make your foreign exchange deals in town because they offer a better rate.

But if it becomes absolutely necessary, there are several ATMs and foreign exchange counters available at SkyCourt.



If you have a long layover at the Budapest Airport, you may want to stretch your legs and get some sleep. There are a lot of cushioned benches at the AirCourt hall that are comfortable enough for a quick nap. Also, terminals 2A and 2B have a lot of seating space but none of it works as a decent sleeping spot.

There are 5 lounges that do not have any sleeping facilities, which means getting a decent amount of sleep without leaving the airport is not an option.

For those who want to get quality sleep and don’t mind paying for it, there are 4 hotels that are about 5 minutes away from the airport.

Hope you’ll enjoy your layover at the Budapest Airport!
