Our customers know that they receive real value-added services with their comfortable, flexible and secure payment instrument from Citibank. Together with Malév, one of our key partners, we are now launching an unprecedented promotion on the Hungarian market, which we believe to be very popular within our target audiences and we expect to grow the number of our customers in line with the participation in this promotion.”

Thanks to Malév’s membership in one world, our passengers can redeem their points not only on the Malév network but also on that of the airline alliance spanning some 700 destinations in 150 countries and, naturally, they can continue to accrue points.”
