Air Malta to start flying to Comiso this December offering the Sicilians even more travel options throughout Europe and North Africa – Launches Route in Comiso

In line with its growth strategy, Air Malta has today launched in Sicily a twice weekly scheduled service to Sicily’s Comiso airport, every Friday and Sunday as from 17th December.

Last year the Maltese airline also restarted a two to three times weekly scheduled services to the Sicily’s capital Palermo, and with another 14 weekly flights to Catania, Air Malta is now serving three Sicilian airports with a total of 38 weekly frequencies.

Air Malta’s popular hand luggage only Go-Light fares will also apply on this new route making it possible to fly for just EUR39 per way including taxes and charges.

The new services will further enhance the connect strategy Air Malta is adopting and will offer more travel options at the best process for the Sicilian population.

Commenting during a press conference in Comiso to launch the new services, Air Malta’s Acting CEO, Joseph Galea stated, “The launch of this new route is a great opportunity for both Islands. As an airline we are aware of the strong ties between Malta and Sicily and this is corroborated by the continuous increase in traffic being registered on all of our routes operating to Sicily. Last year we carried 150,000 (+6%) on Catania and almost 20,000 passengers on our new Palermo route. We are delighted with these results and with the introduction of this new service. This new operation will facilitate the travel needs of the community residing in the Ragusa region, not only by travelling to Malta, but even beyond by connecting to other destinations through Malta on our network.

This welcome addition is further proof of our commitment to Malta and Sicily and will strengthen our position by tapping into new markets in line with our current growth strategy and becoming the Airline of the Mediterranean Islands.”

Air Malta gives the best choice for travellers wishing to travel between Italy and Malta with the highest number of frequencies per destination compared to any other carrier. This extensive schedule reinforces the airline’s leading position for flights between Italy and Malta.

Comiso is surrounded by the municipalities of Chiaramonte Gulfi, Ragusa and Vittoria. The city of Comiso and the neighbouring towns and villages offer spectacular scenery and impressive land marks. Wandering through the streets and cobbled lanes of Comiso, visitors

are intrigued by the baroque architecture which is present throughout the entire city. The Naselli Castle which is an eight sided tower of Gothic origins is regarded as the main landmark of this Sicilian City. The interior of the castle is adorned and decorated with 14th century frescoes while the precious floor mosaic which used to cover the entire floor is now preserved in the municipality library.

Discovering the UNESCO World Heritage Site towns of Ragusa Ibla, Modica and Scicli is undoubtedly an unforgettable experience which takes any traveller on a unique journey to ancient civilisations.
