Ural Airlines launches direct flights between Budapest-Yekaterinburg
Malev, Hungary's former national airline, went bankrupt and stopped flying to Yekaterinburg 3.5 years ago, Jandu said. Travelers, however, can now get to Yekaterinburg from Budapest once a week, Caboodle reports.
Aleksey Fomin, the Ural Airlines quality control director, said that the airline expects to reach a 60-65 percent occupancy rate by the end of its first year.
Ural Airlines was established in 1943 as Sverdlovsk State Air Enterprises. It later became part of Aeroflot, the Soviet state airline, and is in charge of Yekaterinburg Airport. After Aeroflot split-up, the airline became part of a joint stock company incorporated under the laws of the Russian Federation. The company is currently owned by Ural Wings and Ural Transport Bank. It has 1,390 employees.
