Air Malta to operate charter flights to seven U.K. regional airports

This summer season, between May and October, Air Malta will again operate weekly charter flights to/from seven regional airports in the United Kingdom. In line with demand and operations in previous years, Air Malta will operate charter flights to/from Birmingham and Cardiff with two flights every week on Tuesdays and Fridays, and weekly flights on Tuesdays to/from Bristol, Exeter, Newcastle, Norwich and Glasgow airports.

These charter flights increase accessibility to the islands from regional U.K. airports and thus offer travellers the opportunity to travel out and back from their nearest home airport. Furthermore, such flights also attract the interest of the Maltese traveller to visit family and friends in various cities in the United Kingdom. The operation of such regional services was made possible thanks to the support received from tour operators and travel trade partners in the areas. (Source: Air Malta, 19-Feb-2013)
