New Hungarian airline to launch in 2019

RonanAir will begin operating in the summer of next year and will become a key player in the cheap airlines sector providing European-based flights

A new Hungarian airline is set to launch in 2019, it has been revealed.

According to napi.hu, RonanAir will begin operating in the summer of next year and will become a key player in the cheap airlines sector providing European-based flights.

The launch of RonanAir was previously postponed in 2014, but sources insist the firm will begin operations next year.

The airline will travel between significant European cities and lesser-known destinations and provide comfortable cabins and competitive prices.

Reports suggest the first destinations will include Zagreb, Ljubljana, Salzburg and Rijeka, Alexandroupoli (Greece), Bern and Cagliari (Sicily). Flights will not only take off from Liszt Ferenc International Airport but also from Hévíz and Debrecen.

Sources claim that in 2017 Ronan Airlines received 5.48 billion HUF of support, which is part of plans to make Hungary the center of the Central-European air transportation system.

The company was founded in 2014 by Rohan Nanayakkara, a Sri Lankan businessman and Honorary Consul of Hungary in Sri Lanka.
