I was unaware the route had stopped.I remember well that Cairo was one of the last routes to be served by the Air Malta 720s.

It is indeed seasonal.

I really wish Air Malta return to the Gulf, with a few flights a week to Dubai and perhaps Doha, although I don't know if they'd work, especially with EK flying the DXB-LCA-MLA route 5x weekly. Tel Aviv may be a more viable destination.

Hi,

Any chance of Air Malta serving Algiers? If only a seasonal service. They serve Casablanca and Tunis already, just Algiers is missing in North Africa!

On a side note, I was reading about Malta and it seems like a great place to visit! I'm headed to Algeria this summer, and a round trip ticket on KM for three days from TUN is only 228.00 USD (taxes included).Seems like a great price!  Smile Might check it out!

Cheers,
Imad

AH fly their 738s and 736s a couple of times a week to Malta from ALG during the peak summer months already. I tend to think that that pretty much covers the demand.

I think they are only charters.

Yes flights tickets to Malta are very cheap from Tunisia. I think Air Malta is struggling with this route since Malta introduced Visa to Tunisians. Don't know how long will the route last.
Next flights : BRU-ZRH-CAI (LX)/ BRU-FCO-TLV (AZ)

I am highly confident that KM's MLA-TUN should last long. Tunisia is a very popular cheap and cheerful holiday destination for many Maltese. Most of KM's flights cater for Maltese holidaymakers, so the visa issue should not be a problem.

AH332 Malta / Gozo are indeed great places to visit. I spent 10 days there on both islands and really enjoyed it. Air Malta used to fly to Tel Aviv but stopped a few years ago.

It's fantastic! I highly recommend adding it to your itinerary.

Unfortunately, Air Malta is only operating charters to Tel Aviv at the moment, and they tend to be few and somewhat far between. I believe that Tel Aviv would be a viable route if marketed properly.
