Ryanair adds new routes to and from Malta

Malta International Airport has welcomed new Ryanair routes to Aberdeen, Bratislava, Paris Beauvais, Pescara, Porto and Tallinn.

The low-cost carriers started the first of them on 29 March when it touched down in Malta from the Estonian capital of Talinn.

Ryanair has introduced these first-ever scheduled routes from Malta International Airport as part of its summer schedule, which will also see it kick-start operations to Barcelona, Seville and Gothenburg.

Three of the new routes will enable holidaymakers to jet off to countries that are new to the airport’s network this year, namely Slovakia, Estonia and Portugal.

Malta International Airport chief executive officer, Alan Borg said: “Ryanair’s significant investment in a fifth base aircraft to be able to operate a summer schedule featuring 54 routes is a clear vote of confidence in both Malta International Airport and the Maltese islands as a tourist destination.

“What is all the more significant is the fact that the airline has already announced that it will be extending most of its new routes into the winter period.”

Ryanair will be operating flights on five of its new routes on a twice-weekly basis throughout the summer period. Talinn, on the other hand, will be reachable from Malta International Airport every Thursday until October.
