Air Malta’s plan to evolve into the ‘airline of the Mediterranean’ has started reaping fruit after it established a route linking Catania and Vienna that will start operating later on this month. 

This marks a new chapter in the history of the Maltese national airline, and it will now focus on setting up flights from and to other Mediterranean islands besides Malta.

Air Malta’s Vienna-Catania service, which will replace an identical flight previously operated by now-defunct Austrian low-cost airline flyNiki, will operate twice weekly. 

“This is an important step forwards in the implementation of our strategy for Air Malta to explore new opportunities and to mark itself as one of the main airlines connecting Mediterranean islands with important regions in Europe and beyond,” tourism minister Konrad Mizzi told One News. “The Catania-Vienna flight is a very popular one and will prove profitable for Air Malta.”

Air Malta’s flight schedule is also being shaken up on home soil - it has axed flights to Berlin, but plans to introduce flights to Casablanca, Venice and St Petersburg by the end of the year.
