“We are delighted to announce a new Malta route direct from Tel Aviv, operating twice weekly from November as part of Ryanair’s Winter ‘21 schedule in Malta. Israelis passengers can now look forward to exploring Malta with 3-hour direct flights from only €19.99, instead of flying through Germany in 8 hours from over €200* one way.

We are also delighted to announce new Malta routes to Parma and Lisbon, with 2 weekly flights each from November as part of our Winter21 schedule that will deliver over 60 routes, mainly operated by Malta Air from/to its Malta base.

In the past two weeks Ryanair has announced 12 new direct Malta routes to a total of 62 direct Malta routes, compared to a total of 2 routes from Lufthansa and one from Air France, who expect everyone to transfer through Germany or France.

To celebrate, we are launching a seat sale with fares available from just €19.99 for travel until end of March 2022, which must be booked by midnight Saturday 14th August. Since these amazing low fares will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com to avoid missing out.”

 

In his keynote speech, Minister for Tourism and Consumer Protection Clayton Bartolo outlined that this new announcement is sterling news for Malta’s tourism industry.

“Across the years, the Maltese Government has worked hard to ensure that the Malta International Airport continues to embrace new airlines within our shores but most importantly more frequent connections both in Europe and beyond.  The significance of this is associated with the fact that the Maltese Islands will have more frequent visitors in the coming weeks and months,” remarked Tourism Minister Clayton Bartolo.
