Last Saturday thousands of people gathered together in Budapest (MALEV pilots and former employees, their family members and sympathizers) and marched through the city in remembrance of the Hungarian Airlines. The main goal of the peaceful march was to call the attention of the decision-makers to the fact that the country needs a national airline.
The peaceful demonstrators were wearing the symbols of MALEV, and banners with messages such as “I love MALEV”, 66 Years 1946-2012”. A number of pilots were wearing their uniforms, and the blue kerchiefs of the former flight attendants - depicting red-white green airplanes - were also recognizable.
The march started once the noticable MALEV signal began to played, and the demonstrators have cossed the Lagymanyosi Bridge to Buda, where four light aircrafts passed by to honour the memory of the Hungarian Airlines.
The pilots were greeting their colleagues with waving their hands, and many demonstrators were watching the aircrafts flying by with tears in their eyes.
