The airport is located 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) southeast of the center of Budapest (bordering Pest county) and was renamed in honor of the most famous Hungarian composer Franz Liszt (Hungarian Liszt Ferenc) on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of his birth. The airport won the Skytrax Best Eastern European airport prize three times in a line (2014-2016).

It offers international connections primarily within Europe, but also to Africa, the Middle East, the Far East. From June 2015, the transatlantic were restored with two carriers flying to Toronto and Montreal. In 2016, the airport handled 11.4 million passengers. In 2012 it has experienced a significant drop in aircraft movements and handled cargo, primarily due to the collapse of Malev Hangarian airlines earlier in the year, hence losing a large portion of connecting passengers. It was the hub for Malév until the airline’s bankruptcy on 3 February 2012, when at 6 am Malév ceased its operations after almost 66 years of service. Before its closure, the airline had more than one third of the air traffic at the airport,and about 40% of the revenues at Budapest airport originated from Malév operations. The airport serves as a base for Ryainair and the hub for the Hungarian low-cost airliner, Wizz Air.
