Air Malta to fly to/from 30 destinations this summer

Air Malta is planning an enhanced summer 2016 flight schedule that will see improved flight timings on Manchester, Catania, Vienna, Lyon and Marseille and increased frequency on Berlin. The Maltese airline will continue being the largest operator to London and the UK by offering a selection of 30 weekly flights to seven airports. 

With this schedule, running from the Mar. 27th till Oct. 29th, Air Malta aims to carry over one million passengers. 

A number of changes to last year’s summer schedule were made to maximise opportunities, increase efficiency and make flights more attractive, both for travellers from Malta as well as for the tourists visiting the islands this summer. 

"This summer our goal is to achieve targets by doing more with less and dedicating all our resources on Malta. We are following a channel rich distribution strategy that includes tour operators, travel agents, group travel and direct selling through our website. We remain the strongest carrier on Malta operating a selection of 135 weekly flights with the best flight timings, best airport selection and competitive pricing", said Chief Commercial Officer Ursula Silling.

This summer Air Malta will continue being the largest charter operator to/from Malta and is planning an interesting program for Maltese and foreign operators. Discussions with charter operators are currently underway. (Source: Air Malta, 29-Jan-2016)
