Brussels clears aid to airlines on Malta routes23 November 2006
The European Commission yesterday gave the green light to a scheme launched by the government last July subsidising a number of new air routes to and from Malta.
Ryanair, which started operating scheduled flights from Luton and Pisa at the end of last month, was the first airline to benefit from the scheme.
The Commission said it has decided to allow Malta to grant start-up aid for new air routes from Malta International Airport.
