MALÉRT (Magyar Légiforgalmi R.T.) was a Hungarian airline, founded on November 19, 1922. The airline merged with MAEFORT (Magyar Aeroforgalmi R.T.) and Aeroflot in 1944-46 into MASZOVLET (Magyar-Szovjet Légiforgalmi Társaság) a forerunner of MALÉV Hungarian Airlines.

The main fleet before 1939 were eight triple-engined German-built Junkers Ju52/3m aircraft HA-JUA to HA-JUG, one airplane HA-DUR[1] for the government, delivered between 1933-39.
