Air Malta

Air Malta, the country’s national carrier, announced its intention to resume flights between Malta and London Gatwick, Madrid, and Mosco Sheremetyevo Airport for summer 2022.

These new services, scheduled to start from 27th March 2022, will see London Gatwick Airport get served daily whilst Madrid and Moscow will get served three times a week and twice a week respectively.

“We are working hard on an ambitious flight schedule that demonstrates our strong belief that travel and tourism will bounce back next year,” Air Malta Executive Chairman David G. Curmi said.

“Our plans are to effectively double our capacity which we will operate during this forthcoming winter period. It is a strong commitment by Air Malta towards the traveling public and the industry. Our focus will remain on our core European markets,” he continued.

Throughout summer 2022, Air Malta will be operating over 250 flights per week to 20 destinations. 15 of the weekly flights will take passengers to London Heathrow.

“We have started to see signs of recovery across our European markets, obviously with some regions responding faster than others,” Air Malta Coo Roy Kinnear said.

“We are glad to announce our intention to resume services to London Gatwick, Madrid, and Moscow – three routes which we had to unfortunately temporarily suspend last year,” he continued.

Air Malta will continue code-share agreements with a number of airlines, including but not limited to Air France, Emirates, Etihad, Lufthansa, and Qatar Airways.

“Over the last months we have worked hard to put in place a stronger sales and distribution strategy, signing agreements with key sales representatives in various markets and revamping our website and booking engine,” Mr Kinnear said.

“I am positively optimistic that these changes, together with strong demand for travel next year, will support us to have a great 2022,” he continued.
