Air Malta will start operating a twice-weekly scheduled service every Tuesday and Friday to the Balearic island of Ibiza, well known for its lively nightlife.
The seasonal summer programme will apply from August 16 to September 10.
Air Malta’s chief executive, Clifford Chetcuti, said: “Ibiza is a much sought-after destination by the younger generation and is regarded as a mecca for entertainment, especially during the summer months. Over the years we have operated a number of charter flights to the island for travel agents and operators and we think that the route is mature enough to test a seasonal scheduled operation.”
This Med. gem offers something for everyone
Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi added: “Ibiza is a route we have been eyeing for a number of months after receiving requests from the local community, particularly related to the events scene. We look forward to studying this route further, with the possibility of including it in our annual summer schedule.”
Ibiza is regarded as a top entertainment destination. The island is well known for its nightlife, where major European nightclubs have summer outposts and where world class DJs descend on it making it the ultimate destination for clubbers.
This sunny Mediterranean gem offers something for everyone, ranging from world heritage sites to spectacular beaches. Ibiza is also considered to be a historical monument offering visitors with a walkthrough of different civilisations. Strolling through the cobbled, narrow, winding streets of the old city, visitors are welcomed with impressive medieval architecture featuring prominently in the old Cathedral and Castle.
The old town is literally dotted with interesting museums; travellers should not miss the Archaeological Museum which houses and preserves ancient artefacts from pre-historic and Phoenician times.
A visit is not complete unless one experiences a typical Mediterranean meal in the countryside accompanied with local delicacies from fresh produce, virgin olive oil, peasant bread and local wine.
