Air Malta has added four new routes – Malta to London Southend Airport, Malta to Cagliari and flights between London Southend, Catania and Cagliari.
The flights, which commence from 4 May this year, were announced yesterday during a press conference held at the airline’s head office in Luqa.
Air Malta’s chief commercial officer, Paul Sies said: “London’s Southend is the 3rd London airport we serve. The biggest advantage is the airport itself which allows 20 minute check-in and in just 10 minutes after arrival you will be on your way to London.
“We believe we will serve a totally new clientele coming from the broader catchment area of London. Besides this unique new route to London we are thrilled to offer another new destination from Malta.
“We believe Cagliari is a great addition to our offering from Malta and think many Sardinian’s will discover the Maltese Islands and vice versa. We are also today announcing added frequencies on Catania on which we are currently operating an average of 22 weekly flights – a record number of frequencies to/from this airport.”
Air Malta’s chairman, Charles Mangion said it is another step forward in the strategy to connect Mediterranean regions with the rest of Europe. “To operate this ambitious schedule we are leasing in our 10th aircraft for this coming summer season. Indeed these are interesting times for Air Malta,” he added.
