Malev expands Romania network

Written by editor

Malev will launched its fifth route to Romania as its summer timetable came into force, beginning March 29, 2009.

Malev will launched its fifth route to Romania as its summer timetable came into force, beginning March 29, 2009. In total, the Hungarian national carrier operates scheduled services to five cities in the neighboring country including Bucharest, Cluj, Timisoara, and Tirgu Mures. Its latest route, Iasi, opened today, March 30, 2009.

Malév is unique among foreign airlines in the importance it places on servicing Romanian destinations. In fact, with the additional services starting today, the national carrier connects Hungary and five destinations in Romania via 55 scheduled flights a week, which given its extremely convenient connections via its Budapest hub, presents travelers with a direct link with western, as well as eastern Europe.

Flights depart London Heathrow via Budapest to Iasi 5 times a week until the end of May, then 6 times weekly throughout the summer. The flight arrival in Budapest is timed to integrate with the airline’s departure to Iasi ensuring passengers an excellent connection.

UK country manager Doros Theodorou commented: “Since Hungary joined the EU in 2004, demand for Budapest has no doubt increased and is a popular city break. The EU expansion into eastern Europe, however, has also opened up exciting opportunities for the airline with destinations such as Romania proving to be popular locations for the business, as well as leisure traveler. We are, therefore, very pleased to announce the opening of flights to Iasi.”
