Air Malta recently announced the reopening of the Malta-Algiers route operated successfully last summer. The Maltese National Airline operated two weekly flights, and expected to carry 6,000 passengers.
Following the encouraging results of last summer’s venture to the Algerian capital, Air Malta will restart its flights to Algiers on March 19th,2014.
Flights will follow a twice weekly schedule, on Mondays and Thursdays, throughout summer. While supporting and promoting commercial links between the two countries, Air Malta’s operation will stimulate the movement of tourism in both directions. The schedule is designed to also offer connectivity to and from Air Malta destinations beyond Malta in both directions.
Algeria is the largest country in Africa and will soon have a Maltese consulate general which will offer efficient visa facilities.
“This is good news for Malta and Algeria. Our flights will offer much needed connectivity and are expected to facilitate and enhance business opportunities between the two countries.”
