Today an Italian Air Force Boeing KC-767A (reg. MM62226) took off at 10:14 CET towards Poland. At 11:39 the aircraft landed in Rzeszów, the Polish hub where military aid for the Ukraine arrives from all over the world.
It’s been a while since we’ve tracked an Italian military flight to Poland, a sign that Italian aid has slowed down (we’ll see now whether it will start up again on a regular basis).
The interesting thing, however, is the route followed by the Italian aircraft: it did in fact cross Hungarian airspace for a small distance.
In the past, Hungary (which maintains very ambiguous relations with Russia, despite being a NATO member) had not allowed flights carrying military aid to cross its airspace.
At this point the question arises whether Hungary’s attitude has changed.
To confirm this, we have to wait for other similar flights, also because we do not know what the aircraft was carrying and therefore, if it was not actually carrying military material, the flight over Hungarian territory would have been allowed in the past.
