Air Malta to Add More A320neos and New Routes

Air Malta is scheduled to add two more Airbus A320neo aircraft in summer 2019, as part of its long-term strategy, with eyes on Africa routes and more island bases, according to Charles Mangion, chairman, Air Malta.

Once the new aircraft are delivered, the fleet will rise to 12 aircraft. The carrier's first Airbus A320neo, serial 7875, was delivered in June, on lease from Avolon.

Air Malta is also mulling the addition of bases on other Mediterranean islands, as well as the potential expansion to North Africa and other parts of Africa. The airline currently flies to Tunis (Tunisia) and Casablanca (Morocco).

Air Malta’s fleet and destination expansion reflects the competitive market and the increasing demands of travellers.
