I think that potential FR destinations from Malta include Gothenburg, Malmo, Billund, Madrid, Palma de Mallorca, Porto, Lisbon (a city that's not on FR's route map just yet), and perhaps Nice, Thessaloniki (which would be FR's 1st destination in Greece), Bergamo and a destination in Poland.

Will Malta have some A380s from EK??
|Quoting AIR MALTA (Reply 2):|
I really don't know if a Ryanair invasion would be good for the island. If Ryanair is allowed to fly everywhere it wants, that would be very harmful to Air Malta and all other carriers there. There is already a big dispute about the Bologna and Scandinavia routes. Air Malta is threatening to pull out of Scandinavia next summer if FR is allowed to start serving Stockholm. Air Malta got the Bologna route instead of FR. FR is threatening to pull out completely of Malta if it is not given the right to serve Bologna.
For me something is not clear : I thought any airline could start any route in Europe so what's preventing FR from starting the routes it want?
If Ryanair leaves the island it wouldn't be such a tragedy. All the routes it serves are subsidised so the public is still paying for these services!

I don't think EK will operate the A380 on the MLA run, however lots of Lufthansa A380s are expected to come to Malta. We are happy enough with that for the moment!
Works are underway at MLA so that the runways, taxiways, aprons and the new hangars being built for Lufthansa Technik (Malta) are A380-ready within a few months' time. It is for this reason that this year's Malta International Air Show displays are being held over St Paul's Bay and not above the airport.
