As Malta’s tourism industry gears up for a highly anticipated restart this June, the national airline has announced its summer 2021 flight schedule, covering May to October, which includes 20 destinations and over 3,000 flights.

Speaking about recent developments, Air Malta’s Executive Chairman, David G Curmi said, “We are happy to note the gradual increase of consumer confidence and propensity to travel this summer. This increase, driven primarily by the success of the vaccination rollouts in many countries, especially in Malta, augurs well for an easing of travel restrictions and a restart in tourism this summer.”

Mr Curmi added, “We are happy to be part of the process and help re-open our Islands to tourism. The health and safety of our customers and crew remains our top priority and we will continue to abide by all health and safety requirements of the countries to and from which we operate.”

The plan will offer over half a million seats for sale, and includes up to 10 weekly services on London Heathrow, up to 11 weekly services on Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports in Paris, and up to 9 weekly services on Catania.

Air Malta’s Chief Commercial Officer, Roy Kinnear, said that the schedule delivers a strong message of commitment by the Airline towards the local and international tourism industry.

“The schedule focuses on Malta’s core markets for inbound tourism and is in line with Air Malta’s strategy of being a point-to-point carrier operating to major European cities and major airports attaching to larger network airlines through key interline partnerships and code-sharing agreements.”
