Air Malta, Malta’s National Airline, is planning to open up a new route to Oran, Algeria’s second largest city. The twice weekly frequency is expected to operate every Monday and Thursday from 20th July till 31st August. 

Commenting on these new services Joseph Galea, Deputy Chief Commercial Officer said, “This is more good news for both Malta and Algeria. We started flying to Algeria’s capital, Algiers, in June 2013 and following the positive response received, we are now looking forward to start operations to Oran. The city is a major port and the commercial, industrial, and educational centre of western Algeria.”

This service will compliment the twice weekly flights to Algiers that will increase to three weekly flights during the peak summer months just after Ramadan. Flights to Algiers this summer will operate every Monday, Thursday and Sunday.
