It is strongly recommendent to call us (see Contacts) before you want to fly to Kalocsa. At weekends usually you can find staff at the airfield, but on week-days the airfield is empty and the gate is closed, so somebody should go there to help you.

General

Accessibility: Kalocsa can be approached on road 51 from the direction of Budapest and Baja. It is directly connected with Kiskõrös and Kecel by high roads. The Kalocsa- Kecel-Kiskõrös railway line is a wing of the Budapest-Kiskunhalas line. There is a landing place on the Meszes bank of the Danube, which is a stop for ships running on schedule, so Kalocsa can be approached by water, too. The airport can be approached from Kalocsa by a high road through the city, but it can also be reached directly from Road 51 by work roads. There are industrial rails connecting the railway station and the airport. There is ferry service from Kalocsa, Fajsz and Géderlak and two bridges on the Danube at Baja and Solt connect the region with Dunántúl (western part of Hungary). The Danube-bridge of the South Highway is planned to be built near Kalocsa.

Airport Kalocsa is situated at the vertex of Kalocsa-Kiskõrös-Baja-triangle. Into the narrower triangle belong Kecel, Császártöltés, Hajós, Nemesnádudvar and into the wider triangle belong Solt, Paks, Fadd-Dombori, Kiskunhalas, Vaskút.

The position of Airport Kalocsa compared to the airports in the area: there is no other airport with solid surface runway that would be usable for the region. Because of its position, Kalocsa would be the organic part of the Hungarian civil airport network.
