Air Malta has expanded its current code share agreements with partner
airlines to provide more connectivity and accessibility to the Maltese
Islands. This Winter the Maltese airline has revised its codeshare
arrangements with Etihad, Austrian, Meridiana fly and Lufthansa to offer
better connections to both its Maltese customers as well as tourists
wishing to visit the islands from destinations not directly serviced by it.
Commenting on these agreements, Philip Saunders, Air Malta’s Chief
Officer Commercial said, “Through these partnerships with reputable
airlines, Air Malta is offering the Maltese public an extensive array of
destinations beyond its own network both for business and leisure travel.
Together with our partners, we are increasing connectivity for more
tourisim opportunities from far-flung countries to fly to Malta”.
Saunders highlighted that Air Malta’s frequent flights to Europe’s prime
hub airports are proving to be essential, not only for passengers, but also
for the local manufacturing industry and the movement of cargo between
countries in a fast and safe manner.
The recently revised agreement with Etihad Airways makes it possible for
passengers to travel between Malta and Abu Dhabi via London Heathrow,
Manchester and Brussels airports. Air Malta will be the operating carrier
from the UK to Malta and Brussels to Malta and vice versa. Etihad will
operate flights between the UK and Abu Dhabi and flights between
Brussels and Abu Dhabi. Both airlines will place their respective codes
and flight numbers on the connecting services between Malta and Abu
Air Malta has also widened its code share cooperation with Austrian
Airlines by extending its code and flight numbers to flights between
Vienna and Bucharest in Romania and Warsaw in Poland, where
passengers can benefit from excellent both way connectivity. Air Malta
and Austrian Airlines offer good both way connecting flights via Vienna
Airport to/from several other destinations including Toronto in Canada
and John F. Kennedy Airport in New York in the USA.
Through the agreement with the Italian airline Meridiana fly, Air Malta is
now also offering connectivity between Malta and Torino through Rome’s
Fiumicino Airport. Air Malta has placed its code and flight numbers on all
flights operated by Meridiana fly between Rome and Torino, that connects
with Air Malta’s flights between Malta and Rome.
Air Malta also offers several daily connections to a host of airports in
Scandinavia through its regular flights between Malta and Europe’s main
hub airports, primarily via Frankfurt, Munich, Vienna, Zurich and Brussels.
The airline of the Maltese islands provides code share connectivity both
to Stockholm in Sweden and Oslo in Norway via Munich together with its
code share partner Lufthansa. Air Malta also offers daily code share
connections to/from Copenhagen via Brussels through its agreement with
