Hungary. Wizz Air-Air Force agreement for training
Carrier will also be able to land on a military base
Civil and military aviation can get along "in love and harmony", as evidenced by the agreement signed in last few hours by the low-cost airline Wizz Air. The Hungarian company has signed an agreement with the Hungarian Air Force (better known as "Magyar légierő"), a cooperation that is worth deepening. As reported by the local media, flight crew can be trained and trained at the airline's headquarters in Budapest and civil aircraft can be diverted to the military air base of Kecskemet (in the central area of Hungary to be precise: it is also a NATO base); latter eventuality will become concrete in the event that it is not possible to land at the international airport "Ferenc Liszt" of the capital.
Just today, on Thursday 24 September 2020, there was the press conference for the presentation of the initiative and CEO of Wizz Air released some statements. According to Jozsef Varadi, the efforts made in recent years in the field of personnel training have been more than significant. Hungarian Air Force, on the other hand, underlined the financial importance of the agreement, given that pilots, stewards and hostesses will be trained in this country and no longer abroad. In recent days, Varadi has surprised journalists with his statements relating to the current health emergency, recalling how air travel is safer than going to the supermarket to shop (see AVIONEWS).
