Air Malta to resume services to Berlin-Tegel as from the end of this October

Air Malta will resume services to Berlin-Tegel as from the end of this October with up to two weekly scheduled frequencies every Wednesday and Sunday.  This was announced today by Minister for Tourism Dr. Konrad Mizzi at this year's ITB fair in Berlin.

P. Sies, Air Malta’s CCO, explained: "The airline had operated this route mostly to facilitate tour operator traffic but stopped it last year due to weak demand.  After an evaluation and with the enhanced sales power we gained with the introduction of the Go-Light product, our hand luggage only fares, and the new sales teams we appointed in Germany, the airline now sees an opportunity to go back to Berlin as a full scheduled operator.  After getting more support from tour operators and giving them the opportunity to buy seats on the service, we are confident that we can successfully relaunch this service."  (Source: aviationtribune.com, 8-Mar-2018)
