Next summer Air Malta will inaugurate a twice-weekly scheduled service to Malaga, the second most populous city of Andalusia and the sixth largest in Spain. This is the first time Air Malta will introduce scheduled services to the city and signifies a welcome return of Air Malta flights to Spain.

Chief commercial officer Paul Sies said: “The Spanish market has long been on our agenda and we are thrilled to be returning to Spain next year. The launch of this new route continues to show the airline’s leading position as a carrier connecting the Islands to important cities. We are working hard to improve our network of flights through new destinations while adding more frequencies to important destinations to connect better the whole Mediterranean region. We will be announcing more routes for summer 2018.”

He added: “Besides connecting the popular Malaga area, the new route is also the ideal gateway for travel to and from Gibraltar. Nowadays thousands of expats mostly working in the iGaming industry travel frequently between Gibraltar and Malta. Air Malta will now facilitate an easy way to travel between the two countries.”

Malaga is an intriguing destination encompassing a unique territorial setting which evokes the splendour of a southern Mediterranean city. A stroll through the elegantly restored historical city centre will lead you to Malaga Cathedral, also known as Catedral de la Encarnacion, built on the site of a mosque. The cathedral’s rich interior is adorned by both renaissance and baroque-style architecture which definitely make this landmark attraction a very interesting visit.

Malaga lies on the Costa del Sol on the Spanish southern coast, some 100 kilometres east of the Strait of Gibraltar. The historical Roman remains of this remarkable Spanish city take you on a fascinating journey in local culture and heritage dominated by the presence of the strategically located Alcazaba fortress overlooking both the sea and city. In the surrounding areas of the Alcazaba Hill visitors can admire and explore the impressive remain structures of a Roman amphitheatre dating back to 1BC.

Malaga boasts an extensive coastal line full of splendid Mediterranean beaches, protected natural parks and a spectacular countryside scenery. This coastal city offers a captivating vibrant nightlife and a local culinary scene that can only be described as a celebration of mouthwatering fresh fish dishes to die for.

Customers will be able to book flights through, by calling Air Malta’s call centre on 2166 2211, from Air Malta sales office at Malta International Airport or from travel agents in Malta and Spain.
