Boasting one of the youngest aircraft fleets in Europe, Hungary's own airline offers old school service at reasonable prices

Malev Hungarian AirlinesOne of our favourites as they currently have the newest air fleet in Europe. Service is good being staffed almost exclusively by English speaking Hungarian cabin crew. Food is interesting but for the most part don’t expect more than the traditional ham and cheese combinations. Prices vary greatly and depend almost entirely on demand. Book early and out of peak season and a return will come in at around £100-£140. Flights mainly from Gatwick and less frequently from Heathrow. Their website has recently been revamped and now offers the usual features of an online airline.
