New flights to Malta planned for next summer will improve accessibility to the Mediterranean archipelago for British holidaymakers.
Ryanair, bmibaby and Air Malta are all adding routes to Malta next year, developments that have been welcomed by the Malta Tourism Authority (MTA).
Alex Incorvaja, the MTA’s UK and Ireland director, said that the appeal of Malta lies in the islands’ year-round sunshine, warm seas and short flying time.
"It’s the history and culture of the islands – and of course their breathtaking beauty – that provide one of the biggest attractions to Brits," he commented.
Mr Incorvaja went on to say that Malta has a number of activities for adventurous holidaymakers, including rock climbing, yachting, abseiling and cycling.
According to the MTA, the number of [cheap flights to Malta](New flights to Malta planned for next summer will improve accessibility to the Mediterranean archipelago for British holidaymakers.) has more than doubled so far this year, with both easyJet and Ryanair improving access from different UK regions.
From next spring, Ryanair will launch a new route from Leeds Bradford, while bmibaby will introduce flights to Malta from East Midlands Airport.
