Szöveg: / MTI |  2019. május 1. 9:29

As from 1st May, again the Hungarian Air Force ensures the protection of the Baltic airspace for four months.

The airspace of Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia is guarded with four Gripen fighters and about one hundred aircrew. Under the NATO-agreement on ensuring the protection of Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, the Hungarian soldiers first carried out this task in 2015.

The Alliance takes part in the control of the airspace protection of the Member States, which do not have fighter aircraft.

The Baltic Air Policing (BAP) Hungarian Detachment QRA will perform their duties until the end of August at the Lithuanian Šiauliai airport.
