arab-investors-hungary.jpgWe love the international appetite of investors from the Middle East: after the collapse of former carrier of Hungary, Malev in 2012, now a new airline called Solyom is being formed with the help of two major investment firms from Oman and UAE.

The company mentions it all started "when an e-mail was sent to a potential investor on February 6, 2012". Now Solyom mentions "a tourism enterprise registered in Oman" and "a well-capitalized investor with extensive international relations registered in Dubai" as its two strategic investors. It is planning to fly to 31 destinations in 2013, 51 destinations in 2014, and 96 destinations by 2017.
