ir Malta has launched their summer 2022 flight schedule with 125 weekly departures and approximately 1.3 million seats on sale. The carrier will also resume service to London Gatwick and Madrid airports.
On Wednesday (March 30, 2022), Air Malta announced the launch of their summer 2022 schedule which runs from March 27th through October 29, 2022. The carrier will offer 125 weekly departures and around 1.3 million seats to 18 key European Airports across 10 countries. After an absence of over a year, Air Malta is also relaunching daily service to London Gatwick and three weekly flights to Madrid. London Heathrow will be served with 15 weekly flights, Munich with 12, Rome with 10, and Paris will be served with nine weekly frequencies to Orly, and seven to/from Charles de Gaulle. The airline will also serve Amsterdam daily, increasing to eight weekly flights from July through October.
In Wednesday’s announcment, Air Malta’s Executive Chairman, David G. Curmi, said,
“This ambitious flight schedule demonstrates our strong belief that travel, and tourism will bounce back this summer. We are effectively doubling our operational capacity over this past winter. It is a strong commitment by Air Malta towards the travelling public and the industry, both for inbound tourism and outgoing local Maltese community. Our focus will remain on our core markets at the key main city airports of the UK, Italy, Germany and France, whilst we will maintain our commitment, and indeed grow it, on other established routes. One example being our growth on Lyon from two to five services per week.
“We will also continue to work closely with our partner airlines driving connectivity over our European hub airports through code-share agreements with airBaltic, Air France, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Czech Airlines, Emirates, ITA, KLM, Lufthansa, Qatar Airways, Swiss International Air Lines and Turkish Airlines.”
Also commenting on the airline’s summer 2022 schedule, Air Malta’s Chief Commercial Officer, Roy Kinnear, added,
“Markets have already started showing signs of recovery with increased booking activity registered over recent weeks and we are pleased to have our aircraft operating program back to full utilisation at pre-Covid levels. We are glad to be back to both London Gatwick and Madrid, two routes which we had to unfortunately abandon due to the pandemic. Over the last months we have worked hard to put in place a stronger and expanded sales and distribution strategy, signing more agreements with key sales representatives in various markets and relaunching our website and booking engine amongst other initiatives. I am optimistic that these changes, together with strong demand for travel this year, will support us to have a great summer.”
This summer, Air Malta will operate direct flights to Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Catania, Dusseldorf, Geneva, Paris Charles De Gaulle, Paris Orly, Rome Fiumicino, London Gatwick, London Heathrow, Madrid, Milan Linate, Munich, Lyon, Prague, Vienna, and Zurich.
