BUDAPEST, Hungary, 2019-Aug-12 — /Travel PR News/ — People who used the access road leading to Terminal 2 of Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport last week may have travelled back into the past for a moment or two. The construction of a new turbo roundabout had been commenced, and a more than 20-year-old Malév billboard surfaced during preparation works. This relic is offered by Budapest Airport to the Hungarian Museum of Science, Technology and Transport.
Construction of the turbo roundabout that will make road access to Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport faster and more convenient has commenced. During preparatory works last week, the 20-ton advertising portal over the access road leading to the terminal was demolished. When the upper layers of adverts were removed, construction workers were surprised to see an emerging fragment of the past, a Malév billboard of considerable dimensions.
The ad was originally displayed on the massive advertising structure in 1997, and it appears to have been hiding under the advertising surface that was installed over it subsequently. Demolition of the twenty-ton structure was smoothly carried out under a strict security protocol Friday night, lasting for a few hours. During the demolition effort, the billboard of the former national carrier that discontinued its operation in 2012 was removed from the structure undamaged.
Budapest Airport is delighted to offer this relic to the revamped Hungarian Museum of Science, Technology and Transport. It is particularly important for the airport operator to save the memory of the Hungarian national carrier for posterity. For this, the worthiest possible environment is the Hungarian Museum of Science, Technology and Transport.
The offering of this billboard is not the first occasion of cooperation of Budapest Airport and the Museum. Joint work with Aeropark, the aircraft museum operated by the Aviation Cultural Center (LKK), goes back quite a few years. Visitors to the aircraft museum can see old airplanes that are made available for LKK by the Museum of Transport.
