Malev Board Says Finances Are Unsustainable

By Jens Flottau

Hungarian airline Malev appears to be close to running out of money. In a statement to the airline’s board of directors Monday, CEO Lorant Limburger said that despite improving operating results, “the financing of activities had become unviable and was unresolved from the end of January.” In order to ensure continuing operations, the chairman of the board instructed management to come up with a “liquidity plan for the immediate future” by the end of the week.

Malev continued to operate scheduled services on Monday.

The board also approached the government “to do everything possible to resolve the situation,” but acknowledged that its room to maneuver is “extremely limited.” The European Commission earlier this month ordered Malev to pay back millions of dollars in illegal state aid to its government. Hungary vowed it will comply with the ruling.

The Hungarian government, however, declared Malev Hungarian Airlines a “business of prime strategic significance.“ The decree took effect on Monday morning and has significant consequences for the airline and its creditors.

The new status makes it impossible for the creditors to launch bankruptcy procedures against it. It makes it easier for Malev to continue flying at least in the coming days. The airline also said it reached an agreement with International Lease Finance Corp. (ILFC) to continue to provide aircraft.

Designating a company a business of “prime strategic importance” is for situations in which neither the owner of a company deemed important to the country or the economy nor the government is able to support the company financially.

For the time being, the designation enables Malev to continue operating despite its lack of funding. The decree is supposed to provide struggling companies with enough time to find new investors. However, numerous attempts to privatize the airline have failed. Malev is now 95% government-owned, and several potential partners, such as Czech Travel Service and China’s HNA Group, have pulled out of investment talks. Hungarian media are reporting contacts with Spanish low-fare airline Vueling, but such a tie-up seems unlikely.

Foi anunciado hoje às 06AM o fim das operações da Málev :cry: :cry:

Esta informação retirei do site da companhia:

6 am 03 February 2012 – Malév ceases its operation

Based on the Board of Directors’ decision Hungary’s National Airline ceased its operation to minimize its losses. According to this statement, after nearly 66 years of continuous operation, Malév aircrafts will not depart from 6 am 03 February.

“Unfortunately, the event occurred which we had a greatest fear of and we wanted to avoid with might and main. Although, until the latter days there were prospects to continue operation and the trust of our passengers is unbroken, our partners lost their trust due to the information published in the last days and they started to ask for payment of their services in advance. This speeded up the cash outflow and the situation of the airline became untenable. It is also known that the owner, despite the best intentions, is unable to provide additional financial resources to operate after the EU decision. Considering all these the Board decided to order the cease of operation of the Hungary’s National Airline. We apologize to all of our passengers.” - announced CEO Loránt Limburger.


The Call Centre (from Hungary +36 40 21 21 21, from abroad +36 1 802 11 11) informs the Airline’s passengers about the way how they can get to their destinations and the possibilities of compensation.


Passengers entitled to rerouting


According to the government regulation which entered into force on 31st January 2012, assistance can be provided to those passengers who purchased their valid tickets before Malév cease and whose travel dates are on the suspension day or on the following three calendar days. In addition, to those who already travelled to their destination on the suspension day or before and posses valid return tickets on Malév flights on a date not later than 29th February 2012. Those who are entitled are going to have assistance from Malév by rerouting their tickets to other flights or other modes of transportation.

Durante as várias idas a Budapest consegui terminar a frota toda da MA, tendo a minha última descolagem de BUD sido feita no B737-700 HA-LOL

Olhando para o futuro, de acordo com o Wikipedia a WizzAir tem 123 Airbus encomendados... Talvez a Ryanair regresse a BUD

Companhia húngara Malev fecha. Ryanair anuncia 51ª base em Budapeste com 31 rotas.

A Malev, companhia de bandeira da Hungria, anunciou hoje o fecho de atividade. Com uma dívida na ordem dos 200 milhões de euros e sem investidores interessados em participar na empresa, ocorre o segundo fecho de companhia em menos de oito dias na europa.

À semelhança do fim da Spanair, várias companhias anunciaram tarifas de resgate a passageiros afetados. No campo das low cost, a easyJet, Jet2.com, Norwegian e Wizz Air estão a oferecer tarifas especiais.

A Ryanair vai mais longe. Em conferência de imprensa anunciou hoje a abertura de uma base em Budapeste a 17 de fevereiro. O centro operacional terá 31 ligações e 4 aviões baseados. Fomentará 2 mil postos de trabalho e tem condições para transportar 2 milhões de passageiros por ano.
