Utair suspends Moscow-Héviz flight

Tourism

Russian airline Utair has suspended scheduled flights between Moscow and Hungaryʼs Hévíz-Balaton Airport, however charters are expected to start arriving from Russia in the second half of the year, the mayor of the nearby spa town of Hévíz told Hungarian news agency MTI yesterday.

Utairʼs first scheduled flight of the season was to have landed on Sunday, said Gábor Papp. The weak rouble and the state of the Russian economy had caused some doubts about the launch of the flights, he added. Hévíz, home to one of the largest thermal lakes in the world, is popular with Russian visitors to Hungary.
