Following an exceptionally busy winter period, Malta International Airport is now looking ahead to even busier summer days. The airport will be marking the start of the aviation industry’s summer period with the launch of its new flight schedule for the season.
Taking off on the 26th of March, the summer schedule features two new scheduled airlines and a total of 87 routes, four of which are completely new to the airport.
Three of these will be introduced by Wizz Air, giving travellers the opportunity to fly directly to Katowice in Poland, Cluj-Napoca in Romania, and Skopje in Macedonia. Moreover, the airline will be operating flights from Malta International Airport to Belgrade; a route previously served only by Air Serbia.
Low-cost carrier Volotea will be offering the fourth new summer route, Bordeaux, with flights to the French capital of wine taking off from MIA on Mondays and Thursdays.
The two new scheduled airlines for summer 2017, which are both German, are expected to enhance the airport’s connections with Austria and Germany.
Eurowings, a fully owned subsidiary of the Lufthansa Group, will be kicking off its biweekly operations from Malta International Airport to Vienna on the 9th of April. On the other hand, Condor’s operations from Malta to Hamburg and Frankfurt will be launched on the 26th of April.
April also marks the start of a new Cruise & Fly service offered by P&O, which is part of the world’s biggest cruise company, Carnival Corporation. This service will be using Malta as the home port.
Passengers taking off in the coming weeks are reminded to check in early at the airport, as ongoing reconfiguration works across the terminal may impact the check-in and security screening processes.
Guests having queries regarding their next visit or requiring special assistance, should contact the airport team by email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
