This summer Air Malta will again operate weekly charter flights to/from seven regional airports in the UK between May and October 2013. In line with demand and operations in previous years, Air Malta will operate charter flights to/from Birmingham and Cardiff with two flights every week on Tuesdays and Fridays, and weekly flights on Tuesdays to/from Bristol, Exeter, Newcastle, Norwich and Glasgow airports.
These charter flights increase accessibility to the islands from regional UK airports and thus offer travellers the opportunity to travel out and back from their nearest home airport. Furthermore, such flights also attract the interest of the Maltese traveller to visit family and friends in various citiesin the United Kingdom. The operation of such regional services was made possible thanks to the support received from tour operators and travel trade partners in the areas.
Commenting on these services, Philip Saunders, Chief Commercial Officer said, “Air Malta is building on its position in the UK as a leader in the market to Malta. Our summer charter operations further confirms the airline’s commitment to boost incoming tourism to Malta from the UK, and to bring Malta closer to their home. These flights also make it much easier for the Maltese market to visit the British regions.”
