10 reasons you need to grab the window seat on a flight to Malta

When it comes to choosing the best seat on the plane, it’s safe to say you should never opt for the aisle.

Not only does it reduce your chances of being hit by the flight attendant’s cart, but a window pick also offers some breathtaking views of Malta.

What better way to experience Mellieha Bay, Gozo or Valletta’s Grand Harbour from a distance?

Or to see the brightly-hued sea at Comino’s Blue Lagoon in an all new way?

Plus, we can’t think of a more awe-inspiring sight than that of Mdina sticking out above the clouds.

Some of the best aerial photographs of the Maltese Islands can be snapped from the comfort of your window seat.

We’ve picked some of the most stunning aerial shots of Malta from the award-winning Bay Easy Facebook page.
