On Thursday (September 16, 2021), Air Malta announced the resumption of service to London Gatwick, Madrid and Moscow Sheremetyevo for summer 2022. The carrier will offer daily service to London Gatwick, three weekly flights to Madrid and two weekly flights to Moscow Sheremetyevo.

In Thursday’s announcement, Air Malta’s Executive Chairman, David G, Curmi, said,
“We are working hard on an ambitious flight schedule that demonstrates our strong belief that travel and tourism will bounce back next year. Our plans are to effectively double our capacity which we will operate during this forthcoming Winter period. It is a strong commitment by Air Malta towards the travelling public and the industry. Our focus will remain on our core European markets.”
Also commenting on the summer 2022 schedule additions, Air Malta’s Chief Commercial Officer, Roy Kinnear, added,
“We have started to see signs of recovery across our European markets, obviously with some regions responding faster than others. We are glad to announce our intention to resume services to London Gatwick, Madrid and Moscow, three routes which we had to unfortunately temporarily suspend last year. Over the last months we have worked hard to put in place a stronger sales and distribution strategy, signing agreements with key sales representatives in various markets and revamping our website and booking engine. I am positively optimistic that these changes, together with strong demand for travel next year, will support us to have a great 2022.”
Air Malta will continue codeshare agreements with Aeroflot, airBaltic, Air France, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Czech Airlines, Emirates, Etihad, KLM, Lufthansa, Qatar Airways, SWISS, and Turkish Airlines, which will enhance network capabilities.
