This summer, between May and October, Air Malta will again operate every week charter flights to/from seven regional airports in the United Kingdom. In line with demand and operations in earlier years, Air Malta will operate charter flights to/from Birmingham and Cardiff with flights every week on Tuesdays and Fridays, and every week flights on Tuesdays to/from Bristol, Exeter, Newcastle, Norwich and Glasgow airports.
These charter flights increase accessibility to the islands from regional UK airports and thus offer travellers the chance to travel out and back from their nearest home airport. Furthermore, such flights also attract the interest of the Maltese traveller to visit relatives and friends in various cities in the United Kingdom. The operation of such regional services was made feasible thanks to the support received from tour operators and travel trade partners in the areas.
Air Malta operates such charter services as a supplement to the regular scheduled services to/from Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester.
