China’s airline becomes Hungary’s chartered carrier for 2008 Olympics
China’s Hainan Airlines has become Hungary’s chartered carrier for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games in a deal signed Friday with the Hungarian Olympic Committee.
Hainan Airlines’ representative in Hungary Zhao Kai said at the signing ceremony at Budapest airport that the move was not only a commercial deal, but also a way to promote friendship between the two peoples and enhance exchanges between the two countries.
Hungarian Olympic Committee President Schmitt Pál said the deal offered Hungarian athletes, officials and tourists a glimpse of China before they even arrived in Beijing, as the flights would feature Chinese cuisine and music. Hainan Airlines provided a charter service for Hungarians for events during the „Hungary Year” in China in September as well as the Special Olympics held in Shanghai in October. (xinhuanet)
