It’s never been easier to fly to and from Malta.
The island’s connections to the rest of Europe and beyond have been given a massive boost with nine new routes starting this week.
Four of the new routes will serve Malta’s two largest markets, Britain and Italy.
Ryanair has started operating direct flights between Malta and Exeter in England and Cardiff in Wales as well as Perugia in central Italy and Lamezia in southern Italy.
The budget airline has also introduced a new direct route to Maastricht in the Netherlands.
Maltese holidaymakers looking to explore Europe further in the coming months can now also fly directly to popular summer destinations, including Thessaloniki in Greece, or escape to Cork in Ireland.
Other travellers aspiring to tick unmissable adventures off their bucket-lists this year can look forward to travelling directly to Oslo, or catching a direct flight to Amman Airport in Jordan to explore Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
Between April and October, Ryanair will be operating flights on eight of its new routes on a twice-weekly basis.
Torp, on the other hand, will be reachable from Malta every Wednesday throughout the summer period.
Ryanair is not the only airline expanding its operations to and from Malta.
WizzAir started direct flights from Malta to Debrecen Airport in Hungary last weekend.
Qatar Airways and Spanish low-cost airline Volotea are due to start three new routes in June.
