With just over one week to go until its summer schedule kicks off on 1st June, Air Malta has increased its number of planned flights to 51 return weekly flights to 15 destinations.

Roy Kinnear, Air Malta’s Chief Commercial Officer, says that the airline has started to see increased demand as more countries have started to relax their travel restrictions and placing the Maltese islands on their safe travel lists.

“In particular, Germany and the Netherlands are seeing increased bookings come through. Earlier this month we committed to operate over 1,500 return flights this summer and offer for sale over half a million seats and we remain on course to do so,” says the CCO.

Mr Kinnear adds that although Air Malta’s summer flight schedule remains significantly less than that of summer 2019, “we remain flexible in adapting our network and schedule to ensure essential passenger and cargo connectivity to and from the Maltese islands. As demand and bookings grow, we have the ability to increase our operations with more flights in the months ahead if required.”

Air Malta will be restarting its services to the European cities of Lisbon, Munich, Prague and Vienna, and continue to waive rebooking fees for customers if they decide to change their itinerary until 31st October 2021.
