Sólyom Hungarian Airways license application partly rejected

Hungary’s national transport authority NKH has partly rejected an application by Solyom Hungarian Airways for a license, daily Nepszabadsag said on Saturday.

Solyom (falcon) Investment and Asset Management company earlier acquired Avicraft which was licensed to operate ultralights and gliders. Solyom Hungarian Airways asked the authority to extend the license to commercial air transport, but the NKH said the airline must apply for a new license.

Solyom Hungarian Airways wants to fill the gap left by former national carrier Malev, which was grounded a year and a half ago. It aims to launch flights with six aircraft this year and expand its fleet to 50 in four years, competing in the premium category rather than with low-fare airlines.
