New Route of the Day 1 (27 March 2023): Air Malta between Malta and Nice


Air Malta has added its fourth destination in France with the introduction of flights between Malta and Nice on Monday 27 March. The 2-weekly 1,065-kilometre service is being maintained on Mondays and Fridays with the A320 aircraft. The Maltese flag-carrier already serves Paris CDG, Paris ORY and Lyon in France. The Nice service will be maintained on a seasonal summer basis, with the last flight of the year scheduled for 27 October. Air Malta faces no competition on the route.

Air Malta adds five new routes this summer

Air Malta is growing its network this summer season with the addition of five new destinations to its network, in addition to Nice.

Athens International Airport
  • 26 March: Tel Aviv, 3-weekly (resumption – last served in July 2020)
  • 27 March: Naples, 3-weekly (resumption – last served in August/September 2019)
  • 27 March: Palermo, 4-weekly (resumption – last served in October 2021)

Air Malta will deliver an average of 20% growth in the number of flights during the summer compared to last year and plans to operate up to 157 flights per week into Malta during the same period. With the latest additions, Air Malta’s network will grow to 23 destinations.

Despite being the island’s national carrier, Air Malta has fallen behind Ryanair, which now serves over 60 destinations from Malta International Airport.
