What You Can Expect

Budapest Scenic Flight by Private Plane

See Budapest's top sights from a private plane

Your 30-minute private flight will begin with a morning or afternoon pickup at your Budapest hotel, where your driver will take you to Budaörs airport, approximately 30 minutes away. You will be served a glass of Hungarian sparkling wine when you arrive and then board the 4-passenger plane.

Then you’re off! Your pilot will point out top attractions as you go. You’ll see the beautiful hills of Buda and the city structures of Pest, and spot the beautiful bridges stretched across the Danube, like the famous Chain Bridge and Elisabeth Bridge.

As you soar overhead, you’ll see the impressive Parliament Building, as well as the regal sprawl of the Buda Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Snap photos of the communist statues tacked across Momento Park, as well as the towering dome of St. Stephen’s Basilica. Your pilot will be sure to loop around so that you’ll catch any sites you missed the first time.

You will receive a free link to your flight video when you land, so you can experience the trip again when you return home. Your tour will conclude with drop-off back at your hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

This company handled our airtour professionally and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Hungary, Austria and Germany. I gave this tour to my father for his 85 birthday and he loved it from the moment we were picked up and promptly at that to looking over the aircraft at the field to the amazing flight itself. We were given a glass of local champagne but the bubbles of this trip was the flight. It was so smooth and graceful and fun. I bought it for my dad but enjoyed it as much myself. Don't be afraid if you don't think you can handle the small aircraft, the take off and landing were smoother than many commercial flights I have taken. Perhaps we were lucky as far as turbulence but the entire flight was smooth. My dad loved talking over flying with the pilot and took video ever so happily. If you go to Budapest, you should treat yourself to this experience.

We had a great time with this tour. The driver was very friendly and very efficient. The pilot made sure that we have nice view over the city, but without made us feel scare. The most important thing is the scene of Budapest city is so beautiful. Without a doubt this airport was the highlight of my Budapest trip!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

The flight over Budapest was absolutely the best. The pilot went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. Take off and landing from a grass runway really cool. Picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off in town where we wanted. Everything about the tour was perfect. We highly recommend this tour to all.

This was such an incredible experience. We were picked up from our hotel lobby, and driven out to the airport by a friendly driver and greeted with Hungarian Champagne whilst our pilot got the plane ready. The plane ride itself was a breathtaking experience, the pilot pointed out the main landmarks as we flew, and we were blown away by the views. We flew right over the Royal Palace and Castle Hill, then along the Danube river past Parliament, and could see everything so clearly even though it was a cloudy day. After we landed, we were given a video link of the experience which is a really nice touch! We had great fun watching the video when we got home, and it's great to have something to take away in order to better remember the experience.

4 star rating: Recommended September 2015

Amazing trip and so much fun! We were collected from our hotel on time and driven to the airfield by a very polite English speaking driver. On arrival we were given a glass of sparkling wine. The flight was great. We would recommend this trip, its not every day you get to see a city from this amazing view!!
