This winter Air Malta will be operating over 110 weekly flights to 22 destinations, four more than last year and increasing its capacity by around 21% or 146,000 more seats over last year. The winter schedule, which starts this weekend and runs up to end of March 2018, sees the airline operating twice-daily flights to London-Heathrow and Catania and daily flights to Brussels, Rome, London-Gatwick, Munich, and Vienna.
Commenting on this schedule, Dr Konrad Mizzi, Minister for Tourism said, “To operate this ambitious plan the airline will increase the operational aircraft flying hours by nearly 30% over the whole winter schedule. This is good news for our customers, tourists, and our employees. The increase in routes and frequencies during the winter months will also support Government's efforts to reduce seasonality in tourism arrivals.”
“It’s great to see Air Malta adding new destinations and increasing frequencies again. We are excited that we are increasing flights on London, Catania, Rome, Paris, Munich and Vienna and adding Comiso as our new destination. We are also eager to continue our flights to Tunisia throughout the season. Overall we are targeting to carry over half a million passengers to and from the Maltese Islands over the winter period. Our schedule offers European customers the benefit to enjoy the Maltese temperate climate in just a few hours with the best connections and services to major European gateways”, said Mr Paul Sies, Air Malta’s Chief Commercial Officer.
This winter Air Malta will be operating direct flights to/from: Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Catania, Comiso, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, London (Gatwick and Heathrow), Lyon, Milan, Moscow, Munich, Palermo, Paris (Charles de Gaulle and Orly), Prague, Rome, Tel Aviv, Tunis, Vienna and Zurich.
Thanks to the new Go Light one-way fares to European destinations start from as low as Euro 39 including taxes and charges.
The airline will also be operating various code-share agreements with reputable airlines offering more connectivity to destinations beyond the airline’s network. The current list of code share partner airlines includes Etihad, Air France, KLM, Lufthansa, Austrian, Brussels Airlines, Swiss, Aeroflot, Meridiana, Turkish Airlines and Emirates.
Air Malta strives to maintain its ongoing commitment to offer the best value for money prices and refined service in both its economy as well as business class cabins and by operating a conveniently timed flight schedule to/from main city airports, Air Malta offers easy access and connections, together with other partner airlines, over a vast network of more than 100 destinations.
