On an average day, DODO's couriers cover up to 20 000 kilometres in Hungary. This is due to the 150 percent increase in orders last year for the Czech company, which has successfully expanded its data-driven courier services in many European countries in recent years. Hungary is one of the company's fastest growing markets where it operates in 35 cities.

As the aviation world grapples with pilot shortages, Emirates Flight Training Academy’s (EFTA) third graduation ceremony held earlier today welcomed 53 new pilots trained at their world-class facility into the industry.

With the latest ceremony, EFTA celebrated crossing three major milestones, including graduating –

  • international cadets for the first time since the academy opened its doors for non-Emirati cadets in late 2019

  • the largest cohort – more than 50 cadets and double that of previous events

  • more than 100 cadets since its first graduation in 2020.

Located in Dubai South, the Emirates Flight Training Academy was launched by Emirates in 2017 to train UAE nationals and international students to become pilots. The Academy combines cutting-edge learning technologies and a modern fleet of 27 training aircraft to train cadets with no previous knowledge of flying. EFTA’s fleet has 22 x Cirrus SR22 G6 single-engine piston and 5 x Embraer Phenom 100EV very light jet aircraft.

EFTA’s state-of-the-art facility, which is equal to 200 football fields, has 36 modern ground classrooms, 6 full motion flight simulators, an independent Air Traffic Control Tower, and a dedicated 1,800 m long runway.

Ground school (53 weeks): All 36 classrooms are equipped with two 86” touchscreens, running bespoke training software created for EFTA by Boeing. Cadets undergo 900 hours of training, and access the material via their own devices, which are all connected to each other, creating an interactive training environment.

Flying school (250 hours): cadets train on simulators, single-engine Cirrus and Phenom jets.

Guests' favorite winter drink specials have arrived at Starbucks Hungary cafés. In addition to the popular Honey Hazelnut Oat Latte, starting this year the chain offers a brand new coffee specialty, the unique Caramelised Macadamia Oat Latte®. From January 3, 2023, all coffee specialties can be ordered with alternative milk at no extra cost in Starbucks coffee shops nationwide.

Whether you are welcoming a pick me up to start your year on the right foot or want to slow down and take some time to yourself, there’s a Starbucks beverage for you this winter. Starbucks Oat Latte platform is back, with Honey Hazelnut Oat Latte returning for another year after a stellar debut in 2021. This year, it is joined by a new flavor, Caramelised Macadamia Oat Latte.

To coincide with the launch, Starbucks announces it will no longer charge extra for any of its dairy alternatives in stores across Hungary from 2023.01.03. onwards, so customers will always be able to choose the right beverage customisation for them, all year round. So if you prefer plant-based, you can now add soy, oat, almond or coconut drink free of charge in addition to cow's milk.

Enjoy new winter menu

This January, try the new Caramelised Macadamia Oat Latte where subtle buttery macadamia and caramel notes are complete with sprinkle of caramelised macadamia flavour topping. The platform’s unique flavours are specially designed to be paired with our oat dairy-alternative and complement the taste of Starbucks Signature Espresso® Roast, our darker roasted espresso with a rich and nutty flavour profile. As always, you can customise your beverage to make it your own – with your favourite dairy alternative, or if you fancy something cooler, why not try it iced for an uplifting take?

For those seeking the comfort of familiar favourites, the returning Honey Hazelnut Oat Latte is back and better than ever, with an improved flavour profile. This beverage champions the natural flavours of delicate honey and roasted hazelnut. Combined with velvety oat dairy-alternative and Starbucks Signature Espresso® Roast, this well-balanced beverage is finished with a glowing honey flavoured topping; the perfect sip to keep you going through the first months of the new year.

Free non-dairy choices for all

Starbucks Hungary proudly serves a broad range of dairy alternative options, including oat, soya, almond and coconut milk. From the winter menu launch on 2023.01.03., plant-based alternatives to cow's milk are available free of charge in all Starbucks coffee shops across Hungary, making it even easier for customers to choose the right beverage customisation for them, all year round.
