Increased flight frequencies in Malév winter timetable
Friday 15, October 2010
Malév is increasing frequencies on several of its routes to meet passenger demand in the winter timetable coming into force on 31 October.
All destinations usually accessible in the winter period continue to be available on Malév services, while scheduling and capacity are closely aligned to the expectations and travel customs of the travelling public. Accordingly, the airline is increasing – compared to last year’s winter timetable – the frequencies and capacity of selected flights, reducing others or making them more practical.
Compared to the previous winter timetable period, the number of Malév services to Amman, capital of Jordan, rises from two a week to three. Instead of a weekly nine there will be 12 flights a week to Helsinki, while the Dublin connection – reopened in the summer – will fly five times a week in the winter timetable period. This winter the airline has been given the opportunity to launch night services to Pristina, complementing the existing daytime flights, which will ensure even better connections for travellers flying onwards to West and North Europe. Another change in the timetable being introduced from the end of October is the closure of the airline’s coach services to and from Vienna and Bratislava, while it will still be possible to reach Košice using the Airport Shuttle minibuses operating with a Malév flight number.
Malév’s operation remains based on multiple daily scheduled waves. Approximately one-third of Malév customers are transit passengers, which is why excellent connections are particularly important for the airline. The carrier not only devotes considerable attention to its European destinations but also its Middle Eastern routes, which account for a significant proportion of transit travellers.
The airline will supply a constant stream of discounted air tickets and travel packages to the main destinations in the Malév network throughout the autumn and winter. Malév has launched a massive international campaign in order to support the sales drive in the winter period. Until 31 October, tickets to many popular destinations can be booked for fares starting from an incredible HUF 22,900 including taxes and charges. Discounted tickets can be reserved for travel for virtually any time throughout the winter months from 1 November 2010 until 31 March 2011.
In addition to online flight information there is an easy-to-read and practical printed timetable will be available for Malév customers from November, available on flights of the national carrier, in travel offices and at other Malév partners.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
