Spanish low cost carrier may operate to Malta

15 March 2007

A Spanish low-cost carrier is likely to join the other three which will be operating to Malta in summer.

Talks are being held with Clickair, a Catalan low-cost airline which, if successful, would link Malta International Airport with El Prat airport in Barcelona. Click Air is part-owned by Iberia Lineas Aereas airlines.

If the talks were to materialise, the Spanish carrier will start operating some time in June, joining Italian low-cost carrier Meridiana and Irish carrier Ryanair, which already operate to Malta. Towards the end of the month, Germany’s low-cost carrier Germanwings will start flights from Cologne and Stuttgart.
