Air Malta and FTI join forces and start scheduled services to Hamburg and Leipzig this Winter

Air Malta in partnership with FTI will start scheduled services to the German cities of Hamburg and Leipzig as from the 31st October 2018 with a weekly schedule flight every Wednesday.

Mr Paul Sies, Chief Commercial Officer stated, “The German market is one of our most important markets and strategically we want to grow tourism from Germany. These two new routes are a great addition to our network this winter for tourism but also to increase connectivity between Malta and Germany. With the support of FTI, one of the leading players in the tour operating sectors in Europe, it was possible to introduce both Hamburg and Leipzig as scheduled services. Over the years we have operated a number of charter flights to both German cities and we believe that with the support of FTI through seat commitments we can transform this route to an all year-round scheduled operation and we over time can grow frequency. Such cooperation allows Air Malta to react positively to market opportunities”.

Beppe Bugeja of FTI said "The 35 year long standing cooperation between both companies has always contributed to significant growth from the German-speaking market to the Maltese Islands. Bringing the Hamburg and Leipzig routes back to life is the result of strong partnership".

Air Malta Chairman Dr Charles Mangion added, “Hamburg and Leipzig join the growing number of new destinations launched by Air Malta is recent months. I am happy to note that formal discussions to commerce these services started in November last year at the World Travel Market in London and we are now in a position to start these services as from winter this year. This good news shows that as an airline we can easily adapt to changing market circumstances and partner with leading Industry players to introduce more routes on our network.  This new addition will give us the chance to tap into new markets and the increase traffic between Malta and Germany. After Frankfurt, which we re-introduced last year, we will be operating to a total of five airports in Germany.”

Minister for tourism Dr Konrad Mizzi added, “The addition of these two new routes signifies a strong commitment by Air Malta to continue supporting the local Tourism Industry and increase the spread of markets it operates to. In less than a year the airline has launched 17 new direct services and launched three intra-European flights not connected with Malta. These services will attract new opportunities and facilitate travel for the leisure and business communities and continuing growing the connectivity to the Maltese Islands.”
