  • High season is considered to be June and July. The cheapest month to fly from the United States is February.
  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Hungary flight deals.
  • If you reside on the East Coast of the United States, you can board your flight to Hungary from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). If you are departing from JFK to Hungary, consider using one-stop flights aboard Lufthansa, Swiss, and Delta Airlines.
  • If you are to travel with kids from Los Angeles to Budapest, consider booking your flight with Singapore Airlines.

  • Travelers from central parts of the United States can board their flights to Hungary via Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). When boarding your flight from DFW, please note that Turkish Airlines and Austrian Airlines are among the few airlines offering one-stop flights to Hungary.
  • Most airlines flying to Hungary from Atlanta, Georgia, would allow pregnant women to fly to Budapest without any restriction till the seventh month of pregnancy. After the seventh month, the pregnant woman would be requested to provide a travel safety confirmation document from their doctors before they could be allowed to board their flights to Hungary. This policy is only meant to take into consideration the duration that would be spent in the air and the possible impacts. It is therefore meant to protect the pregnant woman and the unborn child.
  • If you are planning to travel to Hungary for the Hungarian Formula 1 Grand Prix race that takes place annually from early February, please note the airfares for most airlines are likely to rise. This period sees Budapest and the entire motor racing circuit of Mogyorod come to life. Car enthusiasts from all over Europe would fill Budapest hotels, leading to price hikes. You will also face difficulties getting to various parts of the city, since most roads will be closed or crowded with fans.
  • American Airlines offer entertaining and memorable flights from DFW to Hungary. The airline's planes offer extra leg room for stretching. The airline also features an in-flight entertainment library that features the latest movies, music, and television shows of choice.
  • For those travelers who would be driving to their final destinations from BUD with their kids, please remember that Hungary's child safety/seatbelt laws stipulate that children under three years of age must be seated in their appropriate child safety and restraint seats. Children over three years may not need child restraints if the car's seat belts fit them.

FAQs - booking Hungary flights

  • Will I need a visa to travel from the United States to Hungary?

  • Besides Budapest Ferenc Liszt (BUD), where else can travelers from Miami to Hungary land?

    BUD is the main and probably the busiest airport in Hungary. It is, however, not the only airport serving Hungary. Travelers flying to Hungary from Miami International Airport (MIA) can also use alternative airports. If you are visiting Hungary's Debrecen region, your closest airport will be Debrecen Airport (DEB). The airport is located about five kilometers from Debrecen city center. If you are on holiday flying to Hungary's Lake Balaton, you may consider using Heviz-Balaton Airport (SOP).

    Besides Budapest, BUD can also serve as the destination airport for travelers heading to Bratislava in Slovakia and Vienna in Austria. Bratislava is located 179 kilometers from BUD, while Vienna is located 233 kilometers away. If you want to connect from BUD to Vienna, consider using a direct train from Keleti Train Station. On the other hand, Bratislava is approximately a one hour, 56 minute drive from BUD.

    American Airlines, Air Canada, and Air France are some airlines with the highest number of flights from San Francisco to Budapest via San Francisco (SFO) and Budapest (BUD) airports.

    Sopron is located about 64 kilometers south of Vienna and approximately eight kilometers from the Austrian border.

Airline reviews
Cons: "Swiss air returned my bagage damaged and there is no way to report it!"
Read more about SWISS
Cons: "Swiss air returned my bagage damaged and there is no way to report it!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and positive. The seats surprisingly reclined quite a bit. The dinner was actually good."
Cons: "The offer of wine. The wifi options."
Cons: "The TVs in economy class weren’t working and it was an 8 hour flight so it would have been nice to have some entertainment during that time"
Pros: "I was fortunate the person in front didn’t lean back"
Cons: "On Swiss website I added Rehe preference for a lactose free meal — but none were on the plane. The economy seats are close enough together I needed to hold my book to the side to read."
Pros: "The seats were good for a short flight, which this was. No complaints."
Pros: "There was an abundance of drink carts and dining options, snacks. Thank you!"
Cons: "Some of these planes need improved entertainment systems. Half did not work."
Cons: "To my shock, my boarding pass while scanning to enter the aircraft was rejected with wild flashing red lights saying my trip was cancelled. Someone else was given my emergency row seat, booked and confirmed 24 hours ahead. It was a full flight but I got a middle seat and continued my long journey home from Kenya"
Pros: "Service and food were good considering it was "plane food". No delay whatsoever."
Cons: "Black box under the front seat. No room for legs. Seat blocked in lower position, impossible to make it stay in upper position. Entertainment wasn't working good: extremely laggy when it was working ... Seats are way too short. You got the neck support into the upper back ... And I am only 1.80m. Overall, I am done with Swiss until they upgrade their planes. Wifi was 99usd for 220 mo ... what a joke. A 20+yo plane for a such reputated company. There was still the ashtrays inside the restrooms."
Pros: "All good, just perfect and friendly crew. Great aircraft (B777)"
Pros: "The crew was nice, they served small sandwiches that were tasty, and the entertainment was average with only magazines, but it was a only 1 1/2 flight."
Cons: "The legroom is cramped a bit."
Pros: "We like how delta still has the middle seat open. Makes it feel more comfortable. Also the loading the back of the plane first. Always was a smart idea, glad it’s finally happening."
Pros: "Social distancing, purell wipes were handed out, food and water handed out in a baggy."
Cons: "everything was great. I love delta."
Pros: "The timeliness of the flight and the service during the flight."
Cons: "The tagging of the bags. The bigger bags should be the only ones tagged. Smaller bags that fit in the bin should be allowed in the cabin."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. The food, excellent for coach class; we even had a welcome cocktail. We even managed to take off early."
Cons: "When you travel in the coach class, you know you won't get a much comfort but the seat was acceptable and I had more legroom than expected."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and professional. The on-board entertainment was excellent and the seats were actually comfortable. I was provided the option to use any restroom by the crew without regard to my seating location."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Pros: "The crew was light spirited. Took the angst out of the long stressful wait"
Cons: "Punctuality. Flight was 2 hours late"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The plane was an outdated jalopy. I thought the exit doors were going to fly off. This was in vast contrast to the 737 plane that we had taken earlier in the day for a flight from BNA to ATL."
Cons: "Not getting turned around after flying in the air for an hour, having to get on another plane, and then landing at 4am."
Pros: "How does one describe spending 10+ hours in a metal tube approximately 18 feet wide at 30,000 feet with 300 of your closest friends breathing the same air while having the seat in front of you pushed back so you cannot adequately see the passenger monitor because it's too close to focus on as your knees are under your chin? Flying in "steerage" is not comfortable as humans get larger and airplane seats get squeezed smaller. Please unsqueeze! Cabin crew members were excellent. Other than that, Europe was great!"
Cons: "See other side."
Pros: "Staff were very good."
Cons: "We had an infant and in order to get a meal for the baby one of our paid seats did not get a meal. Very unsatisfactory for first class. The toddler meal provided was terrible. Stale bread, cheese on the sandwich was so bad the baby wouldn't eat it, and he eats almost everything. It was the first food I have seen him refuse to eat."
Pros: "Food was pretty good"
Cons: "Crew rude and disrespectful. Switched my mother’s seat without even telling a middle seat"
Pros: "Crew and food on last leg were acceptable"
Cons: "Every other part of the flying Turkish air experience, particularly Istanbul airport itself. Delayed flights, missed connections, rude, angry staff, worst layout and signage of terminal space. Exhausting."
Pros: "Onboard service was good - two meals and in between. Some good movies and TV plus internet service you have to pay for."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable for 13 hours of intense use."
Cons: "The crew in Berlin gave me the last seat at the airplane which does not recline. I find this to be very unprofessional especially for some with Gold Status with Star Alliance. In addition, they assured me an aisle seat in the connecting flight, which was not the case, it was a middle seat. I felt cheated by the desk crew in Berlin."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines offers an experience much better than your average two-hour plane hop in the U.S. There was a full meal served, staff were kind and didn’t try to sell a bunch of extra stuff to you, and there were many choices for in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the children on the plane were really poorly behaved and loud. In addition, the flight was delayed by 1 full hour and when we arrived in Vienna our luggage (and the luggage of many other passengers) had not been sent with us. We waited in line for luggage for 30 minutes, then another line for at least 30 more minutes to report the missing bag, and we were then told that it wouldn’t arrive for another day and would be delivered to us within a 3 hour window in the middle of the day. This was essentially an entire night and day lost to a mishap that the airline didn’t even notify us of when we landed. Pretty frustrating."
Pros: "The flight was very accommodating. Everything from eye shades, tooth brush and slippers were provided. I took the red eye and slept the whole way."
Cons: "My flight NEVER took place and you have no idea. Shameful! I was hospitalized and I couldn’t flu to Belgrade. I am deeply dissapointed you are not willing to give me my money back. I will NEVER use your service again!"
Cons: "Connection time was 1h 50 mn coz and still didnt catch my next plan It took me 3 hours to get to the transfer desk in Turkish airline and another 3 hours to be in the hotel. I not recommend it after this bad experience"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and supportive, snack was good"
Cons: "Good was good, but not exellent.,entertainment was good, but need more latest movies. Overall, it's good flight, but not the top class"
Pros: "we made it safe everyone was nice things went smoothly"
Cons: "the 40 min delay added and extra half day to the trip // everything else was fine // i don't like this form either, should be simpler... you make it seem like you care for me, but then I'm just a piece on a conveyor belt"

They did not have my food even though I had ordered earlier. Choice of movies was poor and very limited

The cabin was a bit warm, and I felt pretty cramped in my seat. The pilots did a fantastic job flying. Landing is my least favorite part of flying, but I didn’t clutch my husband or the seat in front of me when they landed at Dulles.

Our Izmir-Munich flight was delayed so much that we missed our connecting flight. We stayed here over-night. Today we were on stand by, but there was no room on today’s flight. We’re now stuck here. Lufthansa has been very unhelpful. How long we’re going to be stuck here? It’s absurd. I had to be at work today.

Cons: "I couldn't put my seat back properly because the man behind me was too big. Please put big people in spacious places its more comfortable for all."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and ver polite and efficient"
Cons: "At the boarding gate they were cherry picking whose bag is too large and whose isn't. My bag was tagged for nothing, no one at the aircraft was to load them to baggage hold. Plenty of space on the plane. What is the point of the fuss."
Pros: "A340-600 is a wonderful plane, but economy is too cramped. The stewards do their job of feeding the "cattle", which lacks any personal service."
Cons: "The terminal updates of terminal and gate notifications were wrong! If we had followed your email and gone to T3, we could have missed our flight and be worn out from changing terminals."
Cons: "Passenger in next seat was so big that his fst hung over the armrest and he took up 3 to 4 inches of my space. Lufthansa should not let passengers this big fly in economy class. I appreciate my space in economy will be limited but I should be able to use all of my allotted space."
Pros: "The crew was great. The sandwich was tasty. And, I loved the leg room!"
Pros: "The issue is not with Lufthansa but with the Berlin Airport. First of all, It is not clear that you have to do the checkinn at terminal B and then come back to the gate where you have to go pass security. This is when it gets even more complicated, the line is long and slow, there is only one security arch and xray machine, is took us almost an hour to go through."
Cons: "The issue is not with Lufthansa but with the Berlin Airport. First of all, It is not clear that you have to do the checkinn at terminal B and then come back to the gate where you have to go pass security. This is when it gets even more complicated, the line is long and slow, there is only one security arch and xray machine, is took us almost an hour to go through."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly; more so on this flight than the last flight. I booked seats for the emergency exit knowing it gives more leg room."
Cons: "My baggage was not on the carrousel that was listed on the display, it took a long time to get my bag and it caused me to be late to check into my lodging."

The 2 hour flight from London to Prague didn't offer a meal or entertainment. It would be nice if they could offer something more besides a bag of pretzels, maybe a snack pack, and there's enough time for a movie or a couple of TV episodes, or even a nice magazine.

Cons: "It was awful as to how uncomfortable the business class seats were. The seats were narrow and not much personal space. I would never pay to sit in business class on NA 3ver again."
Cons: "Service far exceed my expectations, seats were superior to anything I've every experience flying domestically in the US."
Cons: "British Airways did not correctly issue ticket to American Airlines and we have to wait another day before departure. Resulted in my loss of monies on various reservations"
Pros: "The seats were great. The crew were very personable and accommodating."
Cons: "The layover was exhausting & getting to other gate was too stressful. Changing planes should be simplified."
Cons: "We had to leave our surfboard bag @ our departing airport because they said it was too big to fit into a 787 international aircraft. I’m a pilot, this is a huge lie."
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "flight was delayed about 2 hours. First hour waited in the plane. Why they've boarded us if we were not able to take off and had to wait in the aircraft? Near Heathrow, we took loops for about one hour. Expensive and offering nothing, no luggage, no seat selection, no meal on board. BA worst than lo"
Pros: "Lovely wide windows!"
Cons: "Surprised at check in with a $60 fee for my one and only checked bag for a 2 week trip. Felt robbed. Seats very close together on flight. Sore knees."
Pros: "The plane ride was fine. No food/drink for such a short flight, but I didn't expect it and didn't need it."
Cons: "It was slightly delayed taking off."
