(SFC) Budapest 2024 will be soaring to new heights and reaching new destinations around the world as their "new vitality" brand was unveiled on a striking new livery design by Wizz Air. The new design will be showcased on Wizz Air's most popular routes on their A321 aircraft.

"As an airline with its roots in Hungary, we are proud to contribute today to building and further promoting the Budapest brand internationally. Wizz Air's aircraft with Budapest 2024 livery design will help create international buzz and inspire people to visit Budapest as we continue to grow capacity and expand our route network," expressed CEO of Wizz Air, József Váradi.

Budapest 2024 Chairman, Balázs Fürjes concluded, "The new airplane featuring the Budapest 2024 design will spread the news of our Hungarian Olympic dream worldwide, in the air and on land. That dream of hosting the Games is as old as the modern Olympic Movement itself and is shared by hundreds of other mid-sized cities like Budapest across the world. We hope that these aircraft will become a symbol of what can happen when you dare to dream: a Games for Budapest is a Games for all mid-sized global cities, across the world."

In addition, Olympic fencer and gold medalist, Emese Szász was at the unveiling ceremony to share an athlete's perspective of Budapest 2024 with the airport community and other guests.

"As a Hungarian and an athlete, I feel proud to see the Budapest 2024 design on these planes...My sport has taken me to many international locations and I can tell you that an Olympic Games in Budapest would be really special," commented Szász.

She went on to say, "For the fans, a Budapest Games would be an incredible experience, because in addition to sport, Budapest has so much to offer - amazing architecture, sightseeing, and gastronomy. The sport festival atmosphere here is something we are famous for, as is the endless enthusiasm of Hungarian fans."

Furthermore, a "Spot the Budapest Plane" competition was launched at the unveiling ceremony. The competition calls for all plane lovers to post a unique photo of the Budapest 2024 livery aircraft using the hashtag #WIZZBudapest2024 to Instagram. Special gift packages will be awarded to the two best photos posted.
