Air Malta Flights to be Booked on Ryanair’s Website

Air Malta has recently reached an agreement to be included on Ryanair’s website, expected to allow passengers to book flights directly from there this summer.

Charles Mangion, chairman, Air Malta, expressed his excitement about the new service by saying that this is a period of consolidation, when the airline will focus on building up 15 new routes and a new schedule which will mean that each aircraft operates for 14 hours a day during the busy summer period.

While keeping its business class, the airline intends to adopt other strategies used by low-cost airlines, such as offering services like car hire and hotel bookings.

It will also be much stricter when it comes to enforcing limits on cabin baggage, warning defaulter passengers that anything over 10 kg will have to be checked in and paid for accordingly at higher rates than if it were booked beforehand.

Mangion added that the workforce had now been reduced to 550, following 450 leaving on an early retirement and a further 450 moving to a new ground and passenger-handling company.
