Ryanair, Malta’s No.1 airline, today (11 Sep) launched its biggest ever Summer 2019 schedule for Malta where it will base a new aircraft, and add 10 new routes from Cardiff, Cork, Exeter, Lamezia, Luxembourg, Maastricht, Nantes, Oslo Torp, Perugia and Thessaloniki.
In addition to these 61 Summer 2019 routes, Ryanair recently launched a new flight partnership with Air Malta, which will allow Ryanair.com’s 600 million annual visitors to book Air Malta flights on the Ryanair.com website. Customers can browse and book Air Malta flights on 21 new winter routes from Malta to 8 different countries across Africa, Asia and Europe, including Russia and Tunisia.
Minister for Tourism Hon. Konrad Mizzi mentioned that the new routes are expected to attract around 120,000 additional passengers between April and December next year going up to 150,000 tourists per annum between January and December 2020. The additional routes include a mix of cities from catchment areas which are not adequately served by existing connections. “It is very positive to note that Ryanair will be investing a further €100M to base another aircraft in Malta, its 6th aircraft to date. This announcement demonstrates Ryanair’s continued commitment to Malta” the Minister added.
