Malta International Airport celebrates launch of new Ryanair routes

Maltese travellers seeking summer holiday inspiration will be pleased to know that Aberdeen, Bratislava, Paris Beauvais, Pescara, Porto and Tallinn are now all just a flight away from Malta International Airport.

The launch of these new Ryanair routes was celebrated on Thursday 29th March, shortly after the first flight from the Estonian capital touched down at the airport. Ryanair has introduced these first-ever scheduled routes from Malta International Airport as part of its summer schedule, which will also see the low-cost airline kick-start operations to Barcelona, Seville and Gothenburg.

Three of Ryanair’s new routes will enable holidaymakers to jet off to countries that are new to the airport’s network this year, namely Slovakia, Estonia and Portugal, whilst the remaining new routes will serve to step up the offering to markets, including the United Kingdom and France, that are already popular with locals.

“Ryanair’s significant investment in a fifth base aircraft to be able to operate a summer schedule featuring 54 routes is a clear vote of confidence in both Malta International Airport and the Maltese islands as a tourist destination. What is all the more significant is the fact that the airline has already announced that it will be extending most of its new routes into the winter period,” said Alan Borg, CEO of Malta International Airport.

MTA Chairman Dr Gavin Gulia praised Ryanair’s continued belief in Malta’s tourism potential by stating that the newly launched summer routes will help in spreading Malta’s connectivity even further and contribute to further positive results by the Maltese tourism industry.

Ryanair will be operating flights on five of its new routes on a twice-weekly basis throughout the summer period. Talinn, on the other hand, will be reachable from Malta International Airport every Thursday until October.
