This summer Air Malta has expanded its codeshare agreement with Brussels Airlines. The agreement is offering Air Malta clients seamless travel connections to destinations not serviced by the airline by connecting through Brussels International airport.
Through this development, Air Malta has started using its code on flights operated by Brussels Airlines to Copenhagen and Toulouse as well as on the route Brussels-Catania-Brussels operated by the Belgian airline. Through this codeshare, both airlines are now able to offer their customers more connections through the European Union capital’s airport.
The codeshare has now also been upgraded to allow each carrier wider access to the other’s seat inventory.
Air Malta had started the codeshare agreement with Brussels Airlines way back in November 2004. From a four-time weekly flight, Air Malta – the operating carrier on the Malta-Brussels-Malta route, has upgraded its frequency to Brussels to a daily flight giving its customers and those of Brussels Airlines a wider range of connection possibilities. The flight schedule that operates at standard times allows an interesting mix of possibilities. With the late afternoon departure from Malta and an evening flight from Brussels, business travellers can fly to Brussels or Malta after a day’s work. This schedule also caters for the holidaymakers interested in short breaks and long weekend in both countries.
Air Malta also concluded an agreement with Brussels airport whereby Air Malta club class passengers will have the opportunity to pass through fast lane and make use of the Brussels Airlines’ lounge.
Both airlines expressed their intention to further increase co-operation to other destinations if suitable connecting points in Brussels become available.
