David G Curmi and Roy Kinnear, Executive Chairman and Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) of national carrier Air Malta respectively, celebrated the airline’s launch of its Madrid route for summer 2022.
Flights to the Spanish capital restarted on 4th April 2022 and shall be taking place up to three times a week – every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
These services have been announced as part of over 125 return flights per week to 18 key European destination being serviced by Air Malta this summer.
“Our return to Spain’s capital city, Madrid, affirms our strategic commitment to connect the Maltese islands to major cities and major airports and to the affluent European catchments,” Mr Curmi said.
“We have worked hard on an ambitious flight schedule that demonstrates our strong belief that travel and tourism will bounce back this summer,” he continued.
Prior to this, Air Malta last operated a Malta-Madrid route 10 years ago. Daniel Azzopardi, Ambassador of Malta to Spain, thus referred to the re-establishment of said route as a “positive development” and “a clear sign of Air Malta’s confidence in Madrid as a destination.”
“We have started to see signs of recovery across our European markets with some regions responding faster than others. We are glad to connect Madrid once again to the Mediterranean islands of Malta,” Mr Kinnear said.
“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 – including Spain – and revamping our website and booking engine. I am optimistic that these, changes, together with a strong demand for travel next year, will support us to have a great 2022,” he concluded.
