The trains are air-conditioned and equipped with couchettes and convertible seats. The Adria InterCity travel time from Budapest to Split is 14 hours, most of which is at night.
With the increase in those who are vaccinated, foreign tourism will pick up and international train traffic will resume, said CEO Róbert Homolya.
He said MÁV is more optimistic than ever and expects an increased number of passengers during the summer season.
While only about 14,000 passengers purchased international tickets in April, that figure rose to almost 26,000 in May, and is already near 19,000 in June.
The most favoured destination countries are Austria, Germany, Romania, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
It was also reported that from July 2 to the end of August, the Volánbusz company will operate air-conditioned coaches to Split and Porec on the Adriatic coast on a weekly basis.
