Air Malta is to operate flights from London Southend Airport this summer to the popular Mediterranean destinations of Malta, Sardinia and Sicily.

From May 4, the airline will operate direct flights to Malta – whose capital, Valletta, is the 2018 European Capital of Culture – on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

It will also operate direct flights to Catania, Sicily, on Mondays and Thursdays, and to Cagliari, Sardinia, on Wednesdays and Sundays, also starting in May.

Charles Mangion, chairman of Air Malta, said: “We are thrilled to be announcing flight services connecting Malta, Sicily, Sardinia and London.

“This is more good news for Maltese, Sicilian, Sardinian and British tourists alike who now have the opportunity to visit these destinations through Air Malta’s services. Indeed, these are interesting times for Air Malta.”

Glyn Jones, chief executive of Stobart Aviation, which owns London Southend Airport, added: “With our multi-award winning facilities, fast and frequent train services to London and market-leading record for punctuality, we look forward to providing an excellent service to passengers wanting to explore Malta, Sicily and Sardinia.”
