Among a dozen points on which Ferihegy failed to comply with an EU directive that came into force in April, several objects that should have been detected during routine screening made it pass security.
The downgrade means that passengers travelling from Hungary to or through other airports in the border free Schengen Zone could now find themselves to extra security checks.”
