Air Malta and Qatar Airways have announced that they signed a comprehensive codeshare agreement. The Agreement reinforces Air Malta’s drive to expand its network and extend its reach. It also shows Qatar Airways’ long-term commitment to Maltese passengers and to boosting tourism to the Islands. Sales will start from today with the first codeshare flights to operate from March 9, 2020.
The codeshare agreement increases Malta’s connectivity with Africa, the Middle East, Australia and Asia by enabling Air Malta’s passengers to travel on Qatar Airways’ flights between Malta, Doha and onward to more than 60 destinations. Air Malta will place its code and flight numbers on several of these Qatar flights thereby allowing the Maltese Airline to participate in these markets not only to and from Malta but also connecting to and from other destinations that it serves.
Qatar Airways’ passengers will also benefit from greater access to Malta and to Air Malta’s extensive Mediterranean network. Codeshare destinations include Cagliari, Palermo and Catania.
Qatar Airways began flying to Malta on June 4, 2019 with daily flights in the summer and a four-times weekly service during winter.
