More than 50,000 people 'Like' Air Malta Facebook Page
Air Malta has now become one of the top 5 Malta brand pages on Facebook, according to respected social analytics agency SocialBakers.
More then 50, 000 people now actively follow and engage with the airline's regular updates, the majority of which expressed their affinity for the airline's official Facebook Page within the last 12 months.
Air Malta's Comercial Chief, Philip Saunders, commented that "during this time, the airline has been investing more resources to become more noticed and more relevant on the most popular social platform." Facebook is also integrated with the new website, launched In March, by allowing users to log in using their credentials, as well as displaying the latest Facebook activity in realtime.

Air Malta is enabling both new and established customers to share their passion for Malta with their friends based abroad. These interactions are expected to continue increasing as people turn to social recommendations while planning their trips abroad.
