Air Malta Increases Capacity to Paris and Amsterdam From July 20, 2021
Air Malta will increase capacity on routes to Paris and Amsterdam starting July 20, 2021. Service to Paris-Charles de Gaulle will increase to daily, except on Wednesdays, while flights to Amsterdam will operate daily, except Tuesdays and Sundays.
On Tuesday (June 15, 2021), Air Malta announced that in response to strong demand, they will increase capacity to Paris and Amsterdam from July 20, 2021. The carrier will operate daily service to Paris-Charles de Gaulle, except on Wednesdays, and will offer daily service to Amsterdam, except on Tuesdays and Sundays. From September, Air Malta will offer six weekly flights to Amsterdam. Since Malta remains off the UK’s green list for travelers, the carrier has canceled all flights to and from Manchester for the period from July 20th through September 10, 2021. During July, Air Malta will also cancel 11 return flights to London Heathrow, reducing their London schedule to six weekly morning flights, except Tuesdays.
Commenting on the airline’s schedule changes, Air Malta’s Chief Commercial Officer, Roy Kinnear, said,
“We are closely monitoring all the developments in the market and adapting our network accordingly. Unfortunately, the continued absence of green list status in the UK and the decline in advance bookings with no obvious signs of improvement, we are left with no option but to consolidate our planned operations. The UK remains an integral part of our future network plans and Air Malta will re-consider its position if the circumstances change.”
For summer 2021, Air Malta will offer direct flights to 19 destinations including Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Catania, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Geneva, Lisbon, London Heathrow, Lyon, Munich, Milan-Linate, Palermo, Paris-CDG, Paris-Orly, Prague, Rome, Vienna and Zurich.
Founded in 1974, Air Malta is the airline of the Maltese Islands and under normal market conditions usually serves 35 destinations across Europe and the Mediterranean. The carrier is undergoing a vital restructuring, in accordance with EU requirements on state aid, to secure a sustainable and profitable future. Air Malta’s mission is to become recognized as one of the world’s leading destination airlines.
