Varga: Seoul, Budapest route could benefit both countries
Launching a direct flight between Seoul and Budapest would play a key role in bolstering economic and tourism ties, Minister for National Economy Mihály Varga said today in South Korea, following talks with Korean Air President Chang-Hoon Chi, the official website of the Hungarian government kormany.hu reported.
A scheduled direct flight between Budapest and Seoul would bring mutual advantages, Varga said. The two countries concluded a new aviation agreement last May, which facilitates the EU-conform operation of passenger and cargo transport by air, kormany.hu reported.
Varga said that Korean Air was weighing the option of opening a new route to Hungary, adding that approximately 80,000 tons of air cargo is transported each year between Hungary and South Korea, kormany.hu reported.
Varga has traveled to the country as the head of a delegation of experts and business people, as well as acting as co-chairman at the second session of a joint economic committee.
