The two SkyTeam Airlines Air France and KLM are selling cheap tickets for flights to Tokyo, Japan to all passengers that are willing and able to fly out of Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport. Prices for a roundtrip from the capital of Hungary to Tokyo start at 398€. Given the fact that the first piece of checked luggage (23 kg) is included, this fare is a great deal!
Depending on the flight dates and the airline you chose to travel with, you’ll have to change planes either in Amsterdam or in Paris before KLM or Air France will fly you to the Japanese capital. Both airlines will most likely operate a Boeing 777 on the route to Asia.
Search & Book
According to the fare rules, the offer will be available from:
- December 29th through June 30th and
- August 21st through December 14th
There are many possible dates within the first-mentioned period. But unfortunately, we couldn’t find any flights priced as low as 400€ within the second period before November 2019.
You have to stay at least until the first Sunday after you arrived or leave Tokyo no earlier than 6 days after the departure from Budapest. The maximum length of stay is 3 months.
Tickets can be purchased until April 10th, 2019. But as always, we wouldn’t recommend waiting for too long, if you’re interested in this deal.
To find available flights, we suggest using Google Flights (instruction). Once you settle for an ideal date, you can buy your ticket on Air France’s or KLM’s website or use our Travel Dealz flights search to get an even better price.
While the tickets for the connection flights from and to Budapest will be distributed in booking class L, the long-haul fares are issued in booking class X.
Booking class L means that you can get up to 50% of the distance traveled in award miles. Booking class X, however, is not taken into account in most of Skyteam’s frequent flyer programs. It will only get you some miles if you’re a member of KLM’s and Air France’s revenue-based FlyingBlue program.

Although winter in Tokyo is cold, it is not too cold for travel.
Three attractions in Tokyo

A market for fresh seafood. A very vibrant place with lots to see (and smell).
District for electronic and otaku goods. What one might have in mind when thinking of Tokyo. Newest gadgets to be found.
- Koishikawa Korakuen
Landscape garden next to Tokyo Dome. An oasis of calm in the middle of a bustling city.
Airports Narita & Haneda
The Tokyo Metropolitan Region has two international airports: Narita and Haneda. Narita is the airport where most flights from Europe will arrive. Tokyo-Narita is located 55 kilometers east of Tokyo city center and is served by the Narita Express. The journey time between the city center and the airport is approximately one hour.
Only a few international airlines fly to Haneda. From Haneda, which is south of the city center, it is much easier to get to Tokyo city center. The JR Tokyo Monorail System takes you to Hamamatsucho Station, which is not far from Tokyo Station.
