Budapest, 13 November 2018. Two Hungarian brands of international repute are working together to strengthen each other: Budapest Airport and Tungsram have concluded a strategic cooperation agreement. The exemplary cooperation between the most widely known Hungarian brands in innovation and aviation propel Hungarian creativity to new heights.

Tungsram, the global brand with Hungarian roots relaunched this spring, will introduce itself to the traveling public at Hungary’s premier international airport. The strategic agreement regulating this was signed today by Jost Lammers, the CEO of Budapest Airport and Joerg Bauer, President & CEO of Tungsram Group.


One of the most spectacular elements of the agreement is that travelers arriving in and departing from Hungary, approximately 1-1.5 million visitors per month, will be greeted with the advertisements of the historic and innovative Hungarian brand at the terminals of Budapest Airport. Tungsram is also furbishing a lounge for its valuable international customers.

The two partners are open to cooperation in a number of other areas as well. Forward-thinking technologies and creative solutions that Tungsram is investing heavily into are important in Budapest Airport’s large-scale airport and terminal development projects ongoing currently and about to be launched in the near future.



Jost Lammers, the CEO of Budapest Airport said during the signing of the agreement: “We are very proud that Tungsram, this Hungary-based global brand, will send the message to the world about its return via the surfaces of Ferenc Liszt International Airport. The cooperation between Budapest Airport and Tungsram is a Hungarian success in an international environment.”

Joerg Bauer, the President & CEO of Tungsram Group added: “We are happy to be a part of the Central European success story of Budapest Airport, we think that this is the best place for our messages to the world. This airport is where our key stakeholders and customers will pass through when visiting us, that is why it is important that our joint innovative solutions in lighting, smart buildings and beyond will also be present here.”
