As of yesterday 14th July, Emirates resumed its tri-weekly flight service from Dubai to Malta via Larnaca, Cyprus, with flight EK 109 landing at Malta International Airport (MIA) at 2pm.

Emirates Country Manager in Malta Paul Fleri Soler, MIA CEO Alan Borg, and Malta Tourism Authority (MTA) Deputy CEO Leslie Vella welcomed the flight’s passengers and crew.

“We are pleased with Emirates’ decision to resume a triweekly operation to and from Malta, especially at this time of uncertainty,” Mr Borg said.

The MIA CEO stressed the importance of the restoration of air connectivity for island states like Malta and said that “[MIA is] confident that Emirates’ service will contribute greatly to putting the Maltese islands on the map again.”

Emirates EK 109 departs from Dubai every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday at 8am, arriving at Larnaca International Airport at 11:10am. The flight then leaves Cyprus at 12:20pm and arrives at MIA at 2:05pm.

On the other hand, the return flight, EK 110, leaves Malta at 3:35pm, arrives in Larnaca at 7pm, departs Larnaca at 8:10pm, and arrives in Dubai at 1:05am the following day.

“We are delighted to resume operating our three weekly flights form Dubai to Malta via Larnaca and are proud to be Malta’s exclusive east-bound carrier,” Mr Fleri Soler said. The route is served by Emirates’ widebody Boeing 777-300LR aircraft, which offers 42 lie-flat seats in Business and 386 ergonomically-designed seats in Economy class.
