Malev Flights to Budapest
We are watching with interest as to how the new Russian ownership will change what was definitely our favourite way to reach many of the cities of Central and Eastern Europe. Even if the journey required a night in Budapest, Malev always provided a professional service to many destinations not served directly from London.
We hope that things stay as good as they have been or - given the promise of new investment from cash-rich, oil and gas driven Russia - even improve. We think that the new membership of the prestigious One-World alliance will makes it imperative that Malev continues with its world class on-board service, but lets hope it also maintains its Hungarian identity..
Malev operates a mixed fleet of Boeing 737 and 767 aircraft alongside Canadair CRJ-299’s and Fokker 70’s.
