Air Malta inaugurated today a new scheduled service to the North African City of Tunis. This service also heralds the national airline’s return to North Africa. The Maltese airline is resuming services to
Tunis after an absence of eight years, initially with a three times a weekly operation.

Air Malta will also provide full cargo services on this route opening up a new cargo gateway to/from Tunisia and beyond.
Mr Paul Sies, Chief Commercial Officer; stated, “We are very excited to be one of the first European airlines to resume regular services to Tunis. Through this launch we are not just offering another new destination on our route network but we are also extending our services by opening a new gateway connecting Europe and North Africa thereby facilitating the movement of passengers and cargo between the two continents; may many other (north) African destinations follow.’’
