Under the terms of the agreement the national carrier will provide specialist assistance and facilities in order that Li-2 aircraft registration number HA-LIX is able to take to the skies in its original, 1960s Malév colours.

Engineers carried out successful engine tests on Ilyushin 76 HA-TCB (ex UR-78736) on 12 July. The aircraft has been stored at Ferihegy since the early 2000s. In the early 90s, Hungarian Ukrainian Heavylift Corporation used the Ilyushin with an operating base at Budapest. It took part as a key aircraft in the memorable earthquake relief flights between Budapest and Yerevan Later on, its operator were known as Hunair and flights were concentrated in Africa, especially in Angola. The IL returned to Budepest from time to time, but only for maintenance. Due the disagreements between CAA and Hunair, the airplane has been left on the apron of Budapest Airport for years. Hopefully, HA-TCB will take off in the near future for a ferry flight.
