Hungarian national airline Malév has cancelled 150 flights so far as a result of the Icelandic volcano eruption, Malév spokesman Ádám Hegedűs told MTI.
Hegedűs said that each cancelled flight has cost the airline several million forints in revenue.
Close to 25,000 passengers were booked on the 150 cancelled flights, the Malév spokesman noted.
National transportation authority NKH spokeswoman Aliz Szabó told MTI that it still appears Hungary's airspace will remain closed until noon on Monday.
Hungary's airspace has been closed since 7:00 p.m. on Friday as a result of the cloud of volcanic ash enveloping northern Europe. (MTI – Econews)
