The opening of these routes is all dependent on health and safety assessments, the airline said.

The news follows restart, last week, of nine new Air Malta destinations (Amsterdam, Brussels, Milan Linate, London Heathrow, Lisbon, Madrid, Palermo, Paris Charles De Gaulle and Orly).

The airline will also restart its Manchester route on 1 August, while from that date the number of flights to London Heathrow and Catania will increase to 10 times a week and nine times a week respectively.

“The Maltese Airline is seeing a gradual increase in bookings; however, it is too early to assess passengers’ expectations and perceptions”, the airline said in a statement.

“In order to assist further the local tourism industry including hotels, restaurants and other tourism operators, and subject to health assessments, by next October, Air Malta hopes to operate scheduled services to Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Catania, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Geneva, Kiev, Lisbon, London Heathrow, Lyon, Madrid, Manchester, Marseille, Milan, Moscow, Munich, Palermo, Paris Charles De Gaulle, Paris Orly, Prague, Rome, Tel Aviv, Vienna, Zurich and Tunis.”

The airline advised passenger to be at the airport two and a half hours before the scheduled time of departure  to clear the new procedures imposed by health authorities in various countries.
