Today’s free Metropol ‘newspaper’ – distributed in public areas across Hungary – features the last Ad by Malév Hungarian Airlines on its last page – featuring portraits of current and ex-employees. It was paid for by the employees, who chose this extraordinary way to say goodbye to the passengers. Márta Róna, communications director said: “The employees of Malév would like to thank the passengers with this symbolic last ad purchased by themselves. We keep all those lots of happy moments of 66 years spent together in hearts!” Malév ceased operations exactly one week ago, last Friday on February 3, 2012.
“We Thank You!
We hereby thank all Malév passengers who chose to fly with the national airline in the last 66 years, for flying with us.
The Employees of Malév
The last Malév ad was published from money collected by the employees of Malév with the support of this newspaper.”
