The minister said that the establishment of direct air links between Hungary and Moldova was an important step forward. He pointed out that the coronavirus pandemic had posed serious challenges to almost all segments of the economy, but tourism and air transport have suffered the most.
Szijjártó said it was important to rebuild air transport, as well as increase the number of new flights from Hungary, as such steps will contribute greatly to a rapid economic recovery.
The launch of the Budapest-Chisinau flight is also important, as the region to the east of the European Union is generally difficult to reach by plane.
The two countries had previously agreed on the mutual acceptance of vaccination certificates. Vaccinated Hungarian citizens can travel freely to Moldova without any testing or quarantine requirements, regardless of the type of vaccine, Szijjártó said.
