Air Malta and airBaltic enters into codeshare agreement
February 2, 2018: airBaltic and Air Malta recently entered into a codeshare agreement.
The codeshare agreement is expected to offer better connectivity to passengers of Air Malta across the Baltic region and Eastern Europe.
Martin Gauss, chief executive officer of airBaltic said: “We entered into collaboration with Air Malta to improve our strong network of codeshare partner airlines, which will ensure smooth and seamless travel for airBaltic customers. The new codeshare agreement will improve services of airBaltic between Malta and Baltic region, and allow passengers to connect every day on this route through common gateways, including Vienna, Munich, Brussels, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, London, Geneva and Zurich.”
Maltese tourism minister Konrad Mizzi said: “This codeshare agreement comes at a time when Air Malta is planning to shape its growth strategy. During this year, Air Malta is expected to operate over 1,500 addition flights compared to last year, and connect to seven new destinations. This codeshare agreement will make Malta more accessible and increase arrivals from Eastern Europe, a region from which we have witnessed a double digital growth in arrivals in 2017.”

We are in the process of transforming our business model into a hybrid carrier. We are also increasing our frequencies on our existing routes by commencing new destinations and adding partners to our network. The agreement will continue to expand, augment our network, and connect our codeshare partners with other airlines.”
