“Many Hungarians will be able to come home with the help of Polish airline LOT”, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday. The Minister said he had held a telephone discussion on the subject with his Polish counterpart, Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz.

“Just as many Hungarians have become stranded abroad because of air traffic difficulties, so too have very many Polish citizens. For this reason, we have agreed to continue to work in close cooperation with Polish airline LOT with relation to organising rescue flights”, he wrote. “During the upcoming days and weeks, we will be bringing many Hungarian citizens home to Hungary from Asia and North America aboard airliners operated by LOT”, Mr. Szijjártó stated.
