Does anyone have any historical information on whether or not non-stop service between North America nad Malta ever occurred. I'm interested in when it may have operated, from which gateway, what carrier and equipment served the route(s).

Thanks in advance.

Good question!

I know KM never has (though maybe via a codeshare??)...

I can't imagine there's a whole lot of traffic between the two countries, which is too bad; Malta is one of my favorite places visited!

I remember many years ago (about 1999 - 2000) when I worked as a travel agent a summer season flight from MLA to NYC operated by ATA in codeshare with Air Malta with L10 / L15 equipment.

Are you certain this wasn't JFK-LCA-BAH? I took GF on this route.

Don't remember those, but after they ended the nonstop BAH-JFK, they flew via GVA for a while.

A very important goal has been achieved this year with the inauguration of services to New York. For the first time Air Malta added a US destination to its route network, operating a B757-200ER trip leased from American Trans Air.

You know there is another airline that did it with a KM codeshare but I cant remember who I just remember it being an odd relationship.

In the late 1990s, Balkan Bulgarian Airlines operated a nonstop flight between MLA and JFK, using a 767-300ER. The flights operated twice weekly and originated and terminated at SOF. That was some time between 1995 and 1997. Weekend packages to NYC from MLA were very cheap, at about 350€. I don´t think the operation was profitable.

In summer of 2001, KM wetleased an ATA 757-200ER that operated twice weekly on the JFK-SNN-MLA route and back, also via SNN. KM lost €1M on this venture.

The info on the KM website is very outdated. I think the info is a copy and paste from some document written about 10 years ago!
