Balaton airport has seen it's trade fluctuating over the past years with
airlines coming and going so always check with the airlines prior to making
Veszprem Airport is at the North end of Lake Balaton
but isn't currently described as an international airport. However due
to the European and international investments being made into Hungary
and specifically the Lake Balaton area,
a new international airport terminal building is in the process of being
built on an existing runway at Veszprem, the money being spent on it is
in the region of €39 million. The existing 400 hectare airport is
currently(2009) owned and operated by BudaWest Airport. Their plans include
extending the runway and being made suitable to accomodate aircraft with
a capacity of 130-150 passengers, building a conference center, a logistics
facility, a hotel, a technology park and looking to the future a waterpark,
a commercial centre, an entertainment center and a casino, this will be
a welcome addtion if you need a flight to Hungary and close to the Northern
end of Lake Balaton.

News - September 2008.
Flights to Hungary are easily booked as there are now plans to also open
yet another airport close to Székesfehérvár which would be known as Alba
airport. it would compete with Budapest airport as well as Veszprem as
it lies between the two not far from the M7 motorway which could even
mean that it competes with Balaton airport for passengers whose destination
is along the South shore of Lake Balaton. the plans are to open the new
airport in 2010 and the project costs could be around 150bn Forint or
around $915 million. With the amount of homes being bought by Brits in
the Lake Balaton area the new airport should be a welcome addition to
the available airports making it even easier for the 2nd home owners to
find convenient flights to Hungary and visit their property abroad for
even short stays.
