UTair’s Budapest to St. Petersburg
The arrival of UTair in Budapest means that the city’s link to St. Petersburg, which disappeared together with Malév – is reinstated. A Russian ballet themed cake was prepared in Hungary to celebrate the occasion.
- UTair commenced services on the 1,600-kilometre route from St. Petersburg (LED) to Budapest (BUD) on 28 April, which was previously served by the Hungarian flag carrier, Malév, before its demise in January 2012. Twice-weekly flights are now offered by UTair and carried out using 737-500s.
