Not sure I can post the link because you have to register to use the site but Travel Mole reports that Malta Bargins will use Air Malta in the future. Currently they use Hello airlines under the brand BritishJet. BritishJet wil stop operations now I presume. The article says
"Air Malta will thus be announcing new scheduled frequencies to the UK in the coming weeks, after slot approvals from the respective airports."

Quoting BHXFAOTIPYYC (Reply 2): They're still selling flights online.... thousands of seats for free, just pay the taxes etc....
Malta bargains are a tour operator who charter Hello to carry out their flying programme. Presumably, if they are going to charter Air Malta in the future, then any bookings will transfer to the Air Malta charter flights.
In fact looking on the BritishJet website, from 12th January the BHX flights are showing KM flight codes, not sure what the changeover dates are for other airports.
It makes sense, in the past few years Air Malta have been doing more and more charter flying and Malta Bargains have a large programme out of Malta.
