Air Malta registers best August in 45 years

Air Malta has registered its best August traffic results in its 45 year’s history. Figures released by Airline today show that Air Malta carried almost a quarter of a million (248,358) scheduled and charter passengers during its busiest month of the year. These results even top by 4,835 passengers (+2%) last year’s August record figures.

Commenting on these positive results Air Malta’s Chairman Dr Charles Mangion said, “It’s great to see these positive results in this challenging market. We are working hard to improve our Revenue Management, Sales and Distribution processes. These figures follow the trend we have so far seen this year in that we have continued growing over 2018, yet at a gentler pace. This year we primarily focused our efforts to improve our operational and commercial performance. A lot has been achieved through the past three years following the increase in the fleet by three brand new 180-seater Airbus A320s and a total of 25 new opened routes. Today we are flying to 42 destinations. It wasn’t easy. A lot of things had to change, and sacrifices done. This growth is being positively received by our tourism stakeholders who are now again seeing Air Malta as a growing Airline.

Air Malta’s Chief Executive Officer, Clifford Chetcuti added, “I wish to thank all staff who are working tirelessly especially during this busy period and are positively contributing to these results.”

Dr Konrad Mizzi, Minister for Tourism commented, “We are truly heartened with these positive results figures. The results published today clearly show that growth path embarked on by Air Malta is bearing fruit. The airline has shown that it can compete and grow even in this challenging market. We will keep working with all stakeholders involved in the tourism sector to pull the same rope to achieve further successes and enter the next phase of the airline’s development.”
