Air Malta will start summer early this year by serving an array of UK regional airports from April in time for the spring and Easter period. Flights to and from Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Exeter and Norwich will be begin on April 8th until October 28th.
Air Malta Chief Commercial Officer Philip Saunders said this was a response to a noticeable increase in demand for shoulder and off-peak holidays.
“Easter starts late this year so we decided to bring forward the start of these regional operations to April instead of May,” said Mr Saunders.
He commented that these added departures and a reduction in travelling time and costs by flying directly from/to such airports, visitors now have more opportunity to travel to and from the airport closer to their destination or their home.
Air Malta operates such regional services as a supplement to the regular scheduled services to/from Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester.
Air Malta offers a free allowance of 20kg for checked-in baggage in the hold and also 10kg as hand-luggage per person on all its flights. Flights can be booked via the airline’s portal www.airmalta.com and the international call-centre on +356 21 66 22 11.
