Ryanair is to operate a new route between Malta and Amman twice weekly as from April.
It will be the 62nd route operated by the low-cost airline from Malta in the summer.
The airline is to base six of its aircraft in Malta in the summer and plans to handle 3.1m customers on its Malta routes during 2019.
Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi welcomed the introduction of the Amman route.
“Ryanair’s new announcement demonstrates its commitment towards the Maltese islands, shortly after it invested $100m to base its sixth aircraft in Malta," he said. "This new route from Amman to Malta is estimated to bring around 11,200 inbound visitors to our islands during the summer months."
Connecting Malta to new routes in the Middle East supports the development of Malta into a business and leisure hub in line with the government’s vision.”
Ryanair recently also launched a new flight partnership with Air Malta, which will allow Ryanair.com’s 600 million annual visitors to book Air Malta flights on the Ryanair.com website. Customers can browse and book Air Malta flights on 21 routes from Malta to eight countries across Africa, Asia and Europe, including Russia and Tunisia.
Ryanair also announced it is releasing seats for sale on many of its routes from €14.99, for travel in January 2019. The sale continued until 5pm on Wednesday.
