The W!ZZ Air is also expanding in Budapest throughout the year 2015. Here is the latest which was launched today from Budapest above the clouds to Lisbon!

On the occasion to the first flight from Budapest  to Lisbon a ceremony connected with a  press conference took place at the Budapest Airport, whereas Joaquim FL Pimpao – Representatives of Portugal Embassy in Budapest (Economic and Commercial Counselor – aicep Portugal Global), Henrique Sousa – Maintenance W!ZZ Air Quality Maganer at Budapest, Balazs Bogats – Head Airline Comerica Bussines Development Unit – BUD Budapest Airport and Mihány Hardy – Communications Director – BUD Budapest Airport welcomed the press individuals.

At first, Joaquim FL Pimpao outlined the importance of having this direct flight to-and-from Budapest, which will open windows for not only the Hungarians, but the Portuguese as well to see, learn more about the two countries culture, gastronomy and way of life. He added … Lisbon, as a city is not just an ordinary place … it has the „must see” sign on guide list for tourist … not to be missed and same goes for the Portuguese tourist to come to Budapest.

Balazs Bogats talked about the pleasure of having this direct flight, which was for some time awaited by the travel addicted individuals. He also stated, on this first flight almost had fully reservation and only has a limited number of seats remaining on its flight back to Budapest – Hungary.

During the press conference was said …The good news is that most of the W!ZZ Air flights from Budapest had previously been pushed more towards the East and now by flying to Lisbon takes the sky’s direction to the West!

There were two huge cakes and before heading to the runways, a slice of the Barcelos Rooster cake was offered to the invited press individuals being present. The other cake was taken onboard the plan heading to Lisbon where Daniel de Carvalho, W!ZZ Air spokesman was awaiting to celebrate at the Lisbon Airport with this  mouth-watering yummy cake prepared in Budapest at the Zila confectionery.

The usually ceremony on W!ZZ Air’s first destination flight is having the water cannon sprinkling the aircraft. This to-day was absent, because the of the rain. Only viewed the passengers on their way to get onboard W!ZZ Air’s first flight to Lisbon.

Two countries connecting people … Another interesting destination for curious traveling lovers to take an adventuring tour from Budapest to Lisbon or from Lisbon to Budapest to get to know each country’s rich history, culture and gastronomy.

Just in brief  about “The legend connected of the Rooster of Barcelos” … It revolves around a dead rooster that crows to prove an accused man’s innocence. However, there are variations to the story.  The Rooster of Barcelos also symbolizes honesty, integrity, trust and honor.
