British Airways returning to Malta in March

British Airways will be returning to Malta in March, the company announced.

It will be offering a daily flight to and from Gatwick starting on March 30.

Hand-baggage only tickets in economy will start from £55 one-way, including all taxes and charges.

Seats in economy for customers who chose to take a bag, including all taxes and charges, start at £67 one-way and one-way business fares start at £274.

The company originally embarked on operations to and from Malta in 1947. It stopped in March 1989 but subsequently returned until operations were halted once more in 2009.

Tourism Minister Karmenu Vella warmly welcomed the announcement and described the announcement as a vote of confidence in the Maltese islands.

"This will further strengthen our links with both London and beyond and should be a big help to both the leisure and the conference sectors.

"This is a result of the continuous process that the ministry together with Malta Tourism Authority and other stakeholders is undertaking to ensure the success of such a vital industry."

Mr Vella thanked the MTA and Malta International Airport for handling the discussions and bringing them to a successful conclusion.
