The Investigating Committee found during the investigation that, through its wording, the document ruling the operation of the airline company may apply pressure on the commander of the aircraft who may only use the opportunity to board Extra Fuel if it is very likely that such Extra Fuel will be utilised.

Transportation Safety Bureau of Hungary recommends the airline company to revise their fueling policy in order to encourage the aircraft commander relevant to the opportunity to board Extra Fuel, thus increasing flight safety.

The Investigating Committee considers that in the case of accepting and implementing the above recommendation, the number of those occurrences may be reduced which lead to fuel mayday situation during flights deviating from the normal procedural and having little reserve fuel.
