Despite millions of passengers visiting it each year, Ferihegy Airport has always been a mystery. It is amazing how little we know about the busiest airport in Hungary. People have seen its check-in desks, departure lounges, restaurants, and shops. The lucky ones may have even sneaked a quick look at a cockpit. But that is all.

Secrets of Ferihegy Airport is the first documentary to show the many places and jobs normally hidden from passengers travelling through Ferihegy. Viewers are presented all these "secrets" from a unique and personal perspective - instead of using narration and actors, we decided to turn to the real experts and asked the airport employees themselves to be our guides.
